Sai no Narutaki佐井の鳴滝


"These rapids is located on the Hidaka River. While called a waterfall, there is almost no falling waterfall, instead this section of the river consists of a series of beautiful rock formations and countless boulders standing amidst raging rapids. There is an open space along the Hidaka River where you can see Sai-no-Narutaki Falls, and there is an explanatory board with excerpts of the original text of the novel ""The River Hidaka"" by Sawako Ariyoshi, a Japanese literary writer from Wakayama Prefecture. It is known as a dangerous spot for rafting that was popular for transporting wood downstream. There is a suspension bridge nearby from where you can see the raging river below."

          Wakayama Main Areas


          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
