Sogi-no-Taki Park曽木の滝公園

Park / Green Space

A park which encompasses the area around Sogi Falls, a magnificent waterfall known as the “Niagara of the East,” located in Okuchimiyahito, Isa City. 210 meters wide and 12 meters tall, the falls’ rock-shearing waters generate an astounding roar. The surrounding area is also adorned with seasonal, natural beauty, and the park holds seasonal events at appropriate times such as in the fall and during cherry blossom season. Restaurants and souvenir and gift shops stand side by side in the park as well; the crucian carp and Berkshire pork dishes are exquisite. Shimizu Shrine, a Shinto shrine dedicated to a god of finding luck in marriage and safe childbirth, is also located on the grounds, and here visitors can learn about the history of this waterway dating back to the Edo period.

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
