Close by the main Shiraito Falls, behind the shops lining the walkway, lies the gorgeous Otodomeno Falls. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, it is hard to get a good view and it is quite surprising that they haven't built or cleared a viewpoint because the powerful...More

You will inevitably see the Otodome Waterfall en route to the more famous Shiraito Waterfall. This is just an ordinary waterfall.

Very nice water fall. Located next to the Shiraito Waterfall. It's worth seeing. Definitely would hit this hidden gym. Was not crowded.
