Its quite a nice looking waterfall to be honest. Though there's not much to do but take pictures of it and admire it a bit. It's easily accessible and is actually right along the road.Just be aware, if you are walking rather than driving, along...More

It's not a big fall when comparing with the others. It's good to stop for taking a photo if you pass by but it may not worth to drive to there to visit particularly. Otherwise you might be disappointed.

I found this sightseeing place from Google map, it's not far away from the Kagoshima Shrine. So, we drove there after visited the shrine. It's by the road side and might easy to miss it. Great to take pictures there.

Expected to see a bigger waterfall with a nice viewing spot. Turned out to be a rather small waterfall that you view from either the side of the road or across the road. There’s a small parking lot for about 5 cars across the road...More

This is a good waterfall in Maruo. 15~20 min walk from Kirishima Onsen Ichiba(Hot Spring Market). The observation deck is quarantined for the safety. But, it's okay to watch from other points. There are very rare visitors. Good to watch 5~10 min.

We found it through google map and stopped over along the road for a few photographs. We enjoyed the view and it was memorable.

It should be a waterfall of hot spring. When I arrived there, I could not see any steam. Perhaps the weather was not cold enough. You can drive there and park at the roadside. Or just walk there from Kirishima Onsen Market.

It is very cold in winter. You can access easily by foot.Unless you go to the hot spring nearby, it is okay but not a must.

Maruo is located at a 3 way junction. Down from Iwasaki Hotel, if you continue straight down you will be at the Kagoshima Airport, if you turn left there the road leads to Kishirima shrine. The waterfall is on the way to Kirishima and not...More

When you are experiencing Kirishima Spa resort a must see spot. It's easy to reach by car and even by foot if you are in the area. You don't need to trek or climb to enjoy this nice waterfall. It's definitely worth a picture!
