Kurotaki Falls (黒滝)
A waterfall located along the Mino River in Miki City, Hyogo Prefecture. The waterfall consists of two stages, a greater waterfall spanning 30 meters in width and dropping four meters in height from a large slab of rock, and a much smaller lesser waterfall. The beautiful falls, flowing amidst verdant hills, is the most picturesque sight in the Yokawa-cho area. The falls are also the site of a folktale about a clever tanuki (raccoon dog) and fox outwitting each other; in addition, the location is said to bring happiness to couples who visit. The falls have been selected for inclusion in a list of the 100 most beautiful water-related landscapes in the east Harima / Kakogawa area.
