  • Chono Falls (Nachi Falls)
    Travel / Tourism
    Hiroshima prefecture Shobara-shi Nishijo-machi
    Waterfalls in Shobara City, Hiroshima Prefecture. It is located behind the mountain on which Kumano Shrine stands and can be reached by going through the temple grounds and then taking the nature trail that leads up to Mt. Ryozan. The five stages of the falling water resemble the tail of a long-tailed fowl, leading to the waterfall’s name of Chono Falls or “Bird Tail Falls”, in contrast to Shimane’s Torikami Falls or “Rising Bird Falls.”
  • Imose no Taki Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Hiroshima Pref. Hatsukaichishi Ono Takinoshita
    This scenic spot is a one-minute drive from the Ono Interchange on the Hiroshima-Iwakuni Road. Located at the upstream from Ogashira Shrine, it consists of two waterfalls, Odaki Falls with a drop of about 30 meters and Medaki Falls that flows down the rock surface from a height of 50 meters, which is why is it has become known since long ago as a waterfall that resembles a couple. There is an observation deck where you can see the scenery of Odaki and the surrounding area. Because there is a sandy area near the waterfall basin, you can enjoy leisurely breaks there spreading out ground sheets. The river is not so deep and flows slowly, so you can also play in it. It is crowded with families in the summer.

Hiroshima Main Areas

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
