Oshin Koshin no Taki Falls, Shari-cho

3.8
#2 of 36 in Things to do in Shari-cho
See the rushing water, fanning out in an attractive natural shape at Oshin Koshin no Taki Falls, a particularly scenic waterfall located within a national park. Take a short walk up the steps from the parking lot to see the misty effect of the water as it rages down the face of the cliff, separated as it goes by a tree-covered island. A geological highlight amid lush greenery, the waterfall punctuates the scenery in a pronounced and pleasing way, making this a great spot for photography.
