The waterfall is part of the route when you descend from the herb garden. It's a short waterfall. It's good but nothing too stunning. Unless you are coming down from herb garden, there's no reason for you to make your way just to see this.

The Falls are lovely when viewed from the cable car, equally so when viewed close up on the walk back down. Incredible to think that sights like this are s close to the city centre.

The waterfall is pretty small, if you like to walk in nature then it will be good to go, if you don't like to walk you can see the waterfall by the ropeway that goes to Herb Gardens.

The attractive but unremarkable waterfalls are a short walk up from the Shin-Kobe station; 5 minutes to the lower falls and at most 15 to the larger upper falls up a long flight of stairs and good path through a very humid forest. In summer the main attraction of detouring to here is the coolness provided by the spray. The... More

Great waterfall experience minutes away from the city. It will require the climbing of some steep stairs so may not be suitable for the elderly. Clean crisp waterfall with fantastic plantation all along the clean pathway to the falls.

We initially planned for a ride in a car of Shinkobe Rope way. However after exiting the Shinkobe station through the South Exit, just steps away we heard loudly noise of a running river. It was a down steam of the Nunobiki fall! The so nice and clear river, beautiful and green surroundings, excellent walking (climbing) trails, and the cool... More

I have to declare that we got stunning autumn weather and clear blue skies for our time here. However, having walking in many countries was still blown away that you can walk from Shin-Kobe train station and then find literally 50+ hikes that transport you to stunning hikes along rivers, in valleys, beside damns and beautiful shades of native trees...

Pretty waterfal, not massive. Having seen several vast waterfalls in the US, this one did feel slightly small, but it was still worth the visit, and works as a nice combination with the herb garden further up the mountainside.

Lovely and peaceful. Was well worth taking the time to walk to it. Access from the station and walk at the back of the station. Will be a bit of a walk uphill. Or if you prefer, do the ropeway and visit on your way down. Not as tough when you are coming downhill!
