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.
