  • Nachi Taisha since-gone and there in front of me went down to the Nachi waterfall. You could see a waterfall in much flying spray and pay visits.

  • Nachi Falls and flying dragon in the same location. I think the best place feel exciting Nachi Falls. Is paid to go closer to waterfall you think is worth so you can take plastic bottles, and holy water are available. It may be little Kitui to have bad feet.

  • “Glorious” What a beautiful place for a shrine to be, somehow I understand the spirituality of a shrine being in such a glorious place at the bottom of Nachi Falls, I was truly impressed. It's not an actual shrine with a temple nevertheless it's still a shrine.
  • That waterfall is incredible. I liked it better than the Kegon Falls
  • Very amazing beautiful waterfall with chedi
  • Nice waterfall
  • Sanctuary which can be accessed by paying an extra and that allows you to upload to a platform from which you get spectacular views of the Nachi waterfall. It is part of the Nachi Taisha, Kumano Kodo within complex. And it is worth paying, even if you've seen the waterfall from below.

Where to stay in Nachikatsura-cho

You can find a couple of guesthouses and minshukus (private homes with rental rooms) close to the temple, located inland from the center of Nachikatsuura-cho. However, by far the greatest collection of places to stay in Nachikatsuura-cho lies down by the coast. You can find some good budget hotels near the main train stations that run past the water, as well as some side-street guesthouses. Look for traditional ryokans offering onsite spa facilities close to the hot springs.
