Shasui Falls (洒水の滝)
You can reach this well-known cascade in Hirayama, Yamakita-machi by taking a bus from Yamakita Station. The famous Kamakura period priest Mongaku is said to have trained at the waterfall, and its name derives from a line of esoteric Buddhist verse. Apart from being named one of the 100 elections of the waterfall in Japan, it has been designated one of Kanagawa's top-50 scenic views, one of the top 100 Future Heritage Spots, and one of the Top 100 Famous Water. Looking up at the thundering waterfall surrounded by greenery from the vermilion painted bridge, you'll absorb negative ions and become refreshed both physically and mentally. Step out of time and away from the noise of the city and enjoy the pure, beautiful flow of these falls.
