Waterfall Spots in Toyama Area

  • Shomyo Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Toyama Pref. Nakanikawaguntateyamamachi Ashikuraji
    With water crashing down from a height of 350 meters and sending up a mass of spray, Shomyo Falls—the highest waterfall in Japan—is an impressive sight. When the flow of water in the rivers increases, another waterfall (Hannoki Falls) appears to the right of Shomyo Falls, and when the flow is really high several other, smaller waterfalls also appear nearby, which makes for a truly amazing spectacle. Hannoki Falls can only be seen in spring, when the snow-melt from the Tateyama mountain range leads to an increased flow of water.

    Toyama Nakaniikawa-gun Tateyamamachi
    This waterfall is on the right cliff of Shomyo valley, a national Place of Scenic Beauty and National Natural Monument. This waterfall only appears in the snowmelt season, and at 500 meters is taller than Shomyo falls. Shomyo falls itself has been selected one of 100 elections of the waterfall in Japan, so the outstanding natural scenery in the area is truly overwhelming. Hannoki falls is only visible for a short time, so be sure to catch it!

Toyama Main Areas

Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
