Momonoo-no-Taki Falls桃尾の滝

Waterfall

This 23 meter-tall waterfall is one of the largest that lies along the Kasuga fault scarp. Long beloved by locals as Furu no Taki, the falls are a popular place to escape the summer heat. The falls are also famous for the Fudo Sanzon Magaibutsu carved into a stone wall on the left side of the plunge pool. This image of the Fudo Trinity is considered to be an excellent example of mid-Kamakura period Buddhist wall carving.

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of “traditional Japan.” The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
