FUKURODA FALLS

Recommended Spot

Fukuroda falls are classified as one of the three famous falls in Japan. The water cascades fall against a giant rock cliff in four sections, so they are also called “ Four-section falls”.
There are some view points to see the falls closely, and from there you can enjoy magnificent scenery every season.

Recommended Spot

One of Japanese three famous falls

The Taki River has its source spring just above the falls. The river flows through the falls and ultimately joins the major Kuji River. They are famous as “four section falls.” In addition, Saigyo, a Japanese monk and poet in the Heian period, had praised Fukuroda falls for their beauty, saying you cannot understand its beauty unless watching it directly in each season.

Seasonal beauty

Fukuroda falls show us a seasonal beauty. Falls fringed with fresh green leaves in spring, feeling a cool air in summer, falls fringed with beautiful colored leaves in autumn and the frozen falls in winter.

Frozen falls

You can see the frozen falls under the severe weather in winter. In winter, an event, “Traveling the winter falls of Fukuroda, Okukuji” , is held. In this event, you can see the fantastic winter view by illuminating the falls and the suspension bridge.
