Mikaeri no Taki Waterfalls見帰りの滝
"Mikaeri no Taki Waterfalls are on the Ikisa River, which has its source on Mt. Sakurei, in the northern part of Ochi Town. The falls have a drop of around 100 meters, and are included in the ""Top 100 Waterfalls of Japan."" Mikaeri no Taki Waterfalls are famous as a good spot for fishing, and also because of the many beautiful hydrangeas growing in the area near the falls. The first few hydrangeas were planted by an elderly lady whose family ran the nearby Seiryuso restaurant; other local residents subsequently planted more, and there are now approximately 40,000 hydrangea plants belonging to around 50 different varieties. ""Mikaeri no Taki Hydrangea Festival"" is held every year in June. There are hiking paths and a suspension bridge, and during the festival the hydrangeas are illuminated."
