Harajiri Falls原尻の滝

Waterfall

This is an impressive waterfall 20 meters high and 120 meters wide is counted among Japan’s top 100 waterfalls and Oita Prefecture’s top 100 scenic beauties. It is unusual in that it appeared from the ground so suddenly, created 90,000 years ago with the eruption of Mt. Aso and the subsequent pyroclastic flow. It is also called the “Niagara of the Orient.” A suspension bridge spans the front and it is possible to walk close to the falling waters.

          A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don't hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
