Fukuroda Falls, Daigo-machi

4.3
#1 of 12 in Nature in Ibaraki Prefecture
See and hear the rushing waters of Fukuroda Falls, a multi-step waterfall surrounded by a rich landscape. With a width of 73 m (239 ft) and total height of 120 m (393 ft), the falls stand as a large natural feature to explore from a range of angles. However, the waterfalls possess a hidden-away atmosphere, surrounded by leafy trees, and broken up into individual cascades as they run downhill to meet the Kuji River. An onsite elevator makes gaining new perspectives on the falls easy for visitors of all ages, so make sure you bring your camera to snap photos of the waterfall from all perspectives.

  • Early January fukuroda falls 7-8% frozen, water was flowing that gap. I thought beautiful in a very rare sight. This waterfall is quite large and souvenir shop, dining room, equipped. On the day so great noodle soup. There was a nice sunny day winter waterfall is thought quite good.

  • Have the opportunity to meet friends Mito, visited waterfall in fukuroda. A ridicously bad check train and bus times in advance. Mid-February could completely freeze was not that, lives in Kyushu who has enjoyed spectacular icefall. Ekiben on train of Suigun line Mito, (was the ISO valve? ) Are delicious.

  • On the day we went it was very quiet, not many tourists so it was easy to get a nice view of the falls. Only a few places were open but everything was nice. If you drive your best bet is to go past the first few roadside parking spaces they charge for and go to one of the shops that have space if you are planning on eating or buying something as then the parking is free for their shop. It's a very beautiful place, but I can imagine it would be a little annoying if busy with lots of tourists. Try to go mid-week and enjoy the peacefulness of the area.
  • A beautiful place with amazing local life. Recommended to visit at autumn (mid october - early November).
  • Fukuroda falls is one of the best place to visit during August-October. Nature is surrounded all over the place. One who loves nature & Green. It's the best place to visit.
  • you can see falls 2 height of places. I recommend you to see it at downer observatory.
  • Beautiful for all seasons ! Bring a coat it is usually a bit chilly
