Although the waterfall isn’t advertised very prominently in the village nor did it feature in our travel guidebook we found it to be a very nice and impressive sight. With its 60-odd meters of falling water in a jungle-like surrounding it is most picturesque.

It's nice but nothing special. There are lot of other falls in Japan which are equal or nicer. If ur by chance around so maybe good chance to spend an hour

We hiked up to the fall from the town, but it is easily accessible by car, too, with a several hundred meter walk up from the car park. The fall is quite impressive, in a beautiful natural setting.
