Joren Falls浄蓮の滝

Waterfall

A waterfall 25 meters tall and seven meters wide located in the Yugashima area of Izu City, Shizuoka Prefecture. This famous Izu sightseeing spot has even been selected as one of Japan’s 100 most beautiful waterfalls. The steep basalt cliff of the waterfall is covered with chain ferns, which are designated Natural Monuments. Thanks to the falls’ waters, the surrounding area is cool even in summer. The falls are famously mentioned in enka folk singer Sayuri Ishikawa’s hit song Amagigoe, and a monument inscribed with the song stands near the falls. Paddies dedicated to growing Wasabi, a local specialty product, stretch into the distance along the falls’ mountain stream, and nearby visitors will find a souvenir shop and tourist information center. Visitors can also enjoy an abundant variety of local specialties in the area, including wasabi soft serve ice cream, steamed dear meat buns, and wasabi rice bowls.

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
