Urami Falls

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.
