  • It is located at the entrance of the station where you can catch the shinkansen, we walked around a bit off but still we found access, we also found two posts were made for use as sticks at the beginning of the journey, for those in need, the stairs at the beginning seem to no end but it gets better, the falls are really nice, the walk was pleasant and the climate also wished us well , beautiful scenery and then back down to leave at the next patrons the two sticks.

  • Road mud to worry about the passage of Typhoon the next day while we visited, but it was lucky. Water is growing, thanks to the rain, like a lot of water falls, here have visited dozens of times and that is ' don't see this so much. You guys are lucky "and he told me. In addition to the "five pine or me falls", is a magnificent waterfall is the waterfall is found not at the overflow from the reservoir, the river flowed. From the Observatory, far from Quanzhou and Interior.

  • My favourite part of Kobe was this waterfall. There was a single bench available here and you can just sit there watching this waterfall. The current is strong and there are no refreshments available. The area is natural and is not tainted with touristy things. The hike up is relatively challenging, you can actually take a cable car to get to the top. However, its still bit of a walk downhill.
  • Beautiful set of waterfalls but a tiring climb.
  • View here is breath taking. The stones around the water fall was so smooth that it's shiny and glittering.
  • Very close to the Shinkansen train station. Very convenient for a first stop after your arrival. There are some indication at the train station that you can follow. Go down the train station to go behind it. Then 5 to 10 min walking later, you're in the middle of nowhere with this quite beautiful waterfall! :)
  • I found this Falls by going down hiking after the Herbs tour up in the mountain. It is not that big deal though.
