Dangyo Falls壇鏡の滝

Waterfall

This waterfall is located in the area of Dangyo Shrine in the island town of Oki. The 40 meter waterfalls, which drop from both sides of Dangyo Shrine standing on a cliff, were used for living water and agricultural water since long ago. Made up of Osudaki Falls (also known as Urami Falls, where you can see the back) and Mesudaki Falls, there is still the tradition of cleansing the body with water from the falls on the night before bullfighting tournaments and Oki Classical Sumo tournaments for long life, success in battle and to prevent fires. In addition, it has been chosen as one of Japan's top 100 waterfalls because of the abundant amount of water.

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
