Went to the waterfall early in the morning, taking the train from Mito to Fukuroda and reaching Fukuroda Station at 8.45am. The first bus haven't started running yet and there... read more

My boyfriend and I have visited this in August and there was not plenty of water falling. I highly recommend this place in spring time because it's full of water and you can see all the Sakuras blooming!!

There is an entrance fee to see the falls as well as quite a walk, but it is worth it. The walk through the small town before the falls provides one some time to relax and hava a small meal or ice cream/shave ice. The latter which is very enjoyable on a hot summer day! The walk up to the... More

What more can I say than others have? One of the major waterfalls to see according to our family in Japan. The small town was also nice for a stroll and shopping. We were there during low season, so may have had a nicer experience than others -- very few people. Be prepared to walk a fair amount up the... More

Daigo town Ibaraki Prefecture. This waterfall have a wonderful heart shape stone in the middle. You have to walk through the tunnel to see the waterfall and take the elevator to the top for viewing. The bamboo forest on the way back to the car park is fantastic.

Went to the waterfall early in the morning, taking the train from Mito to Fukuroda and reaching Fukuroda Station at 8.45am. The first bus haven't started running yet and there were no taxis to be seen. The only way to the waterfall was a 45 minutes walk, which I did. The walk was pleasant and I saw many flowers, apple...

From the entrance, there is a long tunnel that lead to the falls. An end, there is a large elevator for an observatory. From an eminence the falls is magnificent! Around the falls, there are many souvenir shops and restrant. 入り口から滝へとつながる長いトンネルが待ち受けています。奥には展望台までの巨大なエレベーターが設置されています。(エレベーターには案内係が常駐しています。) 展望台からの滝の眺めはとても壮大でした(^-^) 滝周辺にお土産屋やお食事処が並び賑わっていました。 ※注 鉄道を乗り継いで行ったのですが、外の気温に比べてJR水郡線や滝に向かうバスが寒く感じました。東京方面の人は衣服を一枚多めに持っていくとよいです。津軽鉄道のストーブ列車が待ち遠しく感じました。

The wide waterfall is splendid.You can enjoy it in all seasons, but early summer in particular and autumn are recommended.

I visited this waterfall in early spring (March 2015). It's a great nature place. I think that mid Spring or autumn will be best time to visit this.

If you're in Ibaraki, then you have to go here. As everyone else has already said, the view was breath taking. Our tour guide said that the view changes according to the seasons and to come back 4 different times to witness the beauty of each.
