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.

  • From Numata across the 40 minutes. To the car park, walk in 20 minutes go to the waterfall. Beside the waterfalls, the noodle shop, is there is very good. (Small buildings near the store, not in the woods of big buildings is. ) Is the waterfall itself is not a big deal. Out for a walk.

  • Cannot get down near the falls because of the snow. I have only seen from a rest area on the near and powerful it is.
