Urami Falls裏見の滝

Waterfall

These falls are large cascades with a 50-meter drop located near Hotaka-jinja Shrine in Minakami Town, Tone County, Gunma Prefecture, and are also known as Horai-no-Taki Falls. Legend has it that Yamato Takeru-no-Mikoto prayed here for rain. Originally the falls were observed from behind, hence their name, but recently, due to the danger of rock falls, it is forbidden to take the path behind the falls. The view from the lookout nearby is spectacular and the water splashing as it flows into the basin is breathtaking. You can feel the minus ions around you.

          Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
