  • Santuario al que se accede pagando un extra y que nos permite subir a una plataforma desde la que se obtienen unas vistas espectaculares de la cascada de Nachi. Es parte del complejo Nachi Taisha, dentro de Kumano Kodo. Y merece la pena pagar, aunque hayáis visto la cascada desde abajo.
  • “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
