One of the three great waterfalls of Japan

The Taki River has its source just above the waterfall, and flows through it and ultimately joins the mainstream, the Kuji River. The waterfall has four levels, so it is also called 'Yodo-no-taki (four-level waterfall).' In addition, Saigyo, a Japanese monk and poet in the Heian period, had praised Fukuroda Falls, saying you could not understand its real beauty without watching it four times a year (every season), so it's called 'Yodo-no-taki (four times waterfall).
