    Kagawa Takamatsu-shi Shionoecho Yasuharakamihigashi
    This waterfall is situated along the Kitaitani River, a tributary of the Koto River. The waterfall’s name is derived from an image of Fudo (Acala) which the great priest Kobo Daishi cut into a rock when he engaged in ascetic training here. The 40-meter-tall waterfall consists of five tiers and is thus also known as “Five Tier Falls.” Situated amidst the mountains away from the city center, visitors rave that coming here feels like you’ve wondered into a lost land. The waterfall was designed a Natural Monument by the prefecture in 1976.

Kagawa Areas

Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone's throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa's prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country's best gardens.
