Waterfall Spots in Yamagata Area

  • Tamasudare Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Yamagata Pref. Sakatashi Masuda Omori
    This waterfall is in Masuda, Sakata City. Said to have been discovered and named by Kobo Daishi, this plunge waterfall bordered by large cedar trees is five meters wide and 63 meters high. In days gone by it was used as a training ground by Shugendo practitioners, and still today there's a sub-sanctuary of Mitake-jinja Shrine before the falls. It's illuminated in the evening from the end of April to the beginning of May and the middle of August, letting visitors experience a different kind of beauty from the daytime. Well known for a variety of seasonal scenery, during the harsh cold of January and February it freezes, turning into a cascade of ice.

Yamagata Main Areas

around-area-map

Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
