Fukiwarenotaki Fall, Numata

(4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
A rapid stream gushing down and hitting the river bottom with huge force will mesmerize you and make you feel like you'll get sucked into the mouth of Fukiwarenotaki Fall. About 7 m (21 ft) high and 30 m (90 ft) wide, the waterfall got its name after a giant split rock at its mouth, which creates a complicated rock pattern resembling Niagara Falls. The hiking route to the waterfall takes an hour to complete and you can visit a number of hot springs along the way. Visited by a million people each year, the waterfall sits a 40-minute bus ride from Numata through scenic villages and nature, some three hours from Tokyo by public transport.

  • Is from the parking lot where first down the stairs for a while in front of a waterfall and walk along the River Road toward upstream. Without snow when you slip or heavy rain so much one day ago it rains a little extra legroom was kinda scary. Big Rock edge to edge and a line are instructed and walk inside. Walk straight on and fukiwari waterfall. Fast-flowing river is not so high, but additionally cracked in the middle and this is strange. On mininiagara indeed, there was powerful. Become so difficult if you fall. I felt the grandeur of nature.

  • The surrounding was nice but it is closed in winter. This is not exactly clear from the information we searched. Will visit another time.  more »
  • The title says it all ! You can still peek at it from a log house situated on top of stairs but it's not worth it. It looks like a cool trail to walk on though. The bridge was also close because of th...  more »
