This waterfall can be reached from Tenninkyo Gorge in the southeastern part of Daisetsuzan National Park by the promenade. The beautiful way in which two mountain streams merge to form a waterfall is reminiscent of the celestial nymph's robe of feathers, and it received its name from the writer Keigetsu Omachi in 1918. It boasts the title of being the largest waterfall in Hokkaido and the second largest in Japan with a height of 270 meters, and has been chosen as one of Japan’s top 100 waterfalls. There is also a waterfall stand where you can face the waterfall in front. Being able to enjoy the superb view together with colorful autumn leaves is a major draw. The promenade is accessible from mid-May to mid-November. It is closed due to snow in the winter.

Hokkaido Main Areas
Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
