There are several waterfalls along the Oirase stream, Choshi Otaki has got to be the most attractive and popular. If you have limited time and if you are taking JR Bus, do not hike from Ichigedo which is more than 2 hours from this waterfall. Take a shorter hike instead from Nenokuchi or Kumoi No Taki Bus stop.

The information and estimated walking time was quite accurate and it gives plenty of time for photo-taking and just absorbing the fresh, cool air, even in the summer. Where... More

One of the biggest and best of many waterfall along the Oirsase Stream. We hiked there from Nenokuchi (by the lake). It was enough for the kids. Lovely spot!
