Nabegataki Falls, Oguni-machi

4.5
#1 of 24 in Parks in Aso-gun
The picturesque falls of Nabegataki Falls allow visitors to peek behind the dramatic curtain of water and explore the hidden cave behind. Situated a short walk from its parking lot, you'll have to navigate some steps and uneven ground to reach the falls, but once you arrive, the dramatic natural composition of the cascade affords many photo opportunities, both from behind the falls and outside them. Although the path leads behind the water, you should expect to get a little wet, so consider bringing along a rain coat for your trip here. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Oguni-machi trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • It is very soothing and go to the other side of the falls. It is safe because staff considerably, is not to go down the staircase is neat.

  • Near the road is narrow and went local by shuttle bus from the parking lot in front of. Is just a little walk to the falls, this waterfall is behind so I felt, for the first time.

  • Large waterfalls fall like bamboo, but is beautiful. Was not crowded so I went into GW. From the temporary parking lot shuttle frequently. It would be about 20 minutes walk. And walkway are fitted is paid ¥ 300 for adults, to me is a much cheaper. Obviously falls area is slippery. I saw an insane person come in sandals or heels, decent suspension.

  • A beautiful waterfall which you could walk underneath it.
  • Beautiful waterfall! Be careful - very slippery paths and steps on rainy day.
  • The most perfect waterfall, that you can walk behind! It gets very busy, and at the moment on weekends you can to park quite far away and take a free shuttle bus, but it's well organised and you don't have to wait long
  • The waterfall is beautiful and the hike to see it is very short. When I went there were quite a few seniors (80yrs or older) who were able complete the hike easily. The water fall is small and there isn't a whole lot of room at the base so it can get crowded. Especially on hot days when people are looking for an activity that's a little cooler. I didn't go at night but I was told that the water fall is lite up at night which gives it a different feel. If you have the chance maybe go see it both ways.
  • Very beautiful waterfall for photography. Must visit waterfall in Japan
