Mino Falls, Mino
(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
After an easygoing hike along the Mino River, take in the picturesque cascade of Mino Falls. First written about 1,300 years ago, En-No-Gyoja (the founder of ancient Japanese mountain worship) meditated beneath these falls for three years before going on to establish various temples. At their most spectacular after a day of rain, the falls plummet 33 m (108 ft) down the sheer rock into the river below, measuring about 5 m (16 ft) wide. You'll need to walk about 3 km (1.9 mi) along a paved path to reach the falls, so bring along some water and wear comfortable footwear. Look out for the insectarium along the way, which endeavors to display some of the surrounding environment's 3,000 species of insects. With our international travel planner, Mino attractions like Mino Falls can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Minoh waterfall is the municipal coffers to comfort you? Citizens "do not rot water water water basin that once again ISAGO pump to the top of the falls, shedding" and have heard rumours, not. At the falls where it had said might have to water rot sometime just fall down, Oh, certainly water flows forever. So said one when seeing well water flows forever looks (lol) the sigh of Minoh city

  • Go approximately 3 km from the Minoh station and come out. Minoh waterfall. During the autumn and attracts many tourists. 3 km trail is really just worth noting good distance as you walk. Please take a look at the go!!. ︎ foot bath is recommended.

  • The walk may be long. But worth the effort to see the rainbow at the waterfall. Beautiful..worth the effort.
