  • Sanjo Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Fukushima Pref. Minamiaidugunhinoematamura Mount Mt.
    "This waterfall on the border of Niigata and Fukushima Prefectures has been selected as one of Japan's top 100 waterfalls. The falls are on the Tadami River that flows from the Ozegahara Marshland to Lake Okutadami, and a popular trekking route connects it with Hiraname-no-taki Falls. The area's so beautiful that it's been said ""A visit to Ozei isn't complete without seeing Sanjo Falls and Ayamedaira marshlands"" Registered with the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, Oze is one of Japan's premier high-altitude marshlands. Used as a base for mountain climbing, it's part of Oze National Park, which covers a vast area spanning four prefectures."
  • Tatsusawa Fudo Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Fukushima Pref. Yamaguninawashiromachi
    This waterfall is only a 10-minute walk from Nakanosawa Hot Spring. It got its name after the Fudo River where a Fudoson (god of fire) is enshrined at the mouth of the river. There is a spectacular ‘male’ waterfall that flows down a giant boulder, and an elegant quietly flowing ‘female’ waterfall on the west side, creating a beautiful contrast. Fall is one of the best times to go.
  • Muso Waterfall
    Travel / Tourism
    Fukushima Pref. Higashishirakawagunyamatsurimachi Yamashita Taikodo 4-6
    This 10-meter-tall waterfall is located in Uchikawa, Yamatsuri Town, Higashishirakawa County. It can be accessed by crossing the 62 meter-long Ayu-no-Tsuribashi suspension bridge that spans the Kuji River from the Yamatsuriyama Station side. The name of the waterfall originates from a local folklore about the Buddhist monk Kukai's visit to the area. The falls have also been selected as one of the best 30 waters of Fukushima Prefecture. There are two notable Jizo statues near the falls.
  • Otsujiga Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Fukushima Ishikawa-gun Tamakawamura Tatsuzaki Takiyama Chinai
    A waterfall along Abukuma River in Takishita, Maedagawa, Sukagawa City. The name comes from the falls drawing the shape of the Otsu kanji character. As the water level increases the width of the falls increase to around 100 meters, leading to its nickname of Little Niagara. When the poet Matsuo Basho visited, he wrote a verse, 'Oh what a sight! With the early summer rains the falls overflow.' On the banks is the Otsujigataki Archaeological Site, the oldest such in the city.
  • Hiraname Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Fukushima Minamiaizu-gun Hinoematamura Hiuchigatake
    This falls is along the Tadamigawa River where it flows from the east edge of Osegahara northward. As its name (“smooth slide”) implies, it flows down 400 meters from a massive rock as if sliding down a hill. This shows that the river, which seems to at first glance to flow through a flat landscape, so that one cannot tell where it comes from, is actually flowing down a gentle slope. About a kilometer farther down the river is Sanjo Falls, chosen as one of the Japan's Top 100 Waterfalls. It appears to be more powerful than Hiraname Falls. Certain sections of the riverbank can be extremely muddy, so walkers need to be fully prepared.

    Fukushima Koriyama-shi Atamimachi Ishimushiro

    滝はすばらしかったです。そこにたどりつくまでの約40分の道が、整備はされてて迷うことはないものの岩場やクサリ場もあってなかなかハードでした。
