Cool little stop

easily accessible, just a hundred meter from the small parking lot. Nice close up view of a beautiful waterfall, can feel the water droplets on your face in the hot summer time!

It isn't very easy to get to without a car, but it is definitely worth a trip. It was really beautiful, and a lot bigger than I was expecting.

Great for a pick nick in a cool breeze. Easily accessible from the round-the-island road: small parking lot and short footpath. Plenty of space to watch and enjoy the cool breeze.

Not very crowded attraction, easily accessible from the main road! It is definitely worth going to while you are in Yakushima.

A high volume waterfall that you can get really close to! It was flooding the path and soaked us all when we were there.

Oko Fall is the best of all waterfalls we visited in our round island tour of Yakushima. From the base, the view of the fall is impressive and the rhythmic sound of the fall is enjoyable. There are rocks in front of the fall. If you are wearing suitable shoes or boots, try climb up those rocks and get a... More

These are visible form the coastal road around the periphery of Yakushima and very easy to access by car. We climbed out onto the rocks at the base of the falls and basked in the aura of these beautiful falls. The height, trees and rock face were very impressive. Highly recommended.

So worth the bus trip out here! It's a beatiful, secluded waterfall that is impressive. I loved climbing out on the granite rocks for a good shot!

Found Oko Fall a very pleasant change on the day we visited. Luckily, we were able to park in the limited area and take some nice photo's. The cool mist was like an energy pack. Great place for a picnic.

The great thing about this waterfall is that it's quite impressive and very easy to access (from the road). Even has bathrooms and a great photo op. My boyfriend clamored on the rocks to get an even better photo. Easy quick stroll of about 30 seconds to the falls. Easy for children to walk to, but not sure about parking...only... More
