This waterfall, located inside Hagafudotaki Park in Shiso City, Hyogo Prefecture, is one of the most scenic locations in Hyonosen-Ushiroyama-Nagisan Quasi-National Park. Consisting of two streams, the greater waterfall boasts an 88-meter drop, the longest in the prefecture. The lesser waterfall flows alongside the greater and plunges into the same pool, and locals believe the falls bring good luck and success in finding love. Visitors can enjoy a stunning view of the falls' flow from the Okukaede Bridge, a suspension bridge built specifically for viewing the natural wonder. The falls have been selected for inclusion in a list of Japan's 100 Best Waterfalls and were else depicted in a Quasi-National Park stamp series released in Japan in 1969.
