    Tokushima Pref. Miyoshishi Nishiyayamamurazentoku
    The Biwa-no-taki (Biwa Waterfall) is located on the Iyagawa River, a tributary of the Yoshino River. The water flows straight down like white threads over bare rock from a height of 50 meters, making for a very beautiful sight. The waterfall derives its name (“Waterfall of the Lute”) from a legend that one of the defeated members of the Taira family living here in exile after the Gempei War sat by the waterfall and played melodies on his Biwa lute recalling the glories of Kyoto.

Kochi Main Areas

around-area-map

The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
