If walking from Naka-Karuizawa then it is worth the time, noting that the walk is not difficult for the average walker. The falls were flowing plentifully after a recent typhoon.

Worth a stop if you have a car otherwise can be a bit out of the way. We generally stop past once every trip as on the way to horse riding lessons in Kita Karuizawa.

A long ways in We walked 20 minutes into the valley on nice easy road and had to walk back out to meet our schedule. The guide said we only walked 1/15th of the way and didn't have time so we never got to see the falls. You will need 2-3 hours of walking. Driving a car will help. A... More

peaceful and cool. Nice to visit in the hot summer. Not too crowded either. You don't need a lot of time.

A picturesque waterfall recessed into a small valley the water cascades into a narrow pool that flows down past a series of larger pools built to stall the water speed. You will walk past some of these as make your way about 1km from the bike/car park up to the waterfall. You really won't notice the construction because nature reasserted... More
