Uriwari Waterfall瓜割の滝

Waterfall

The Uriwari Waterfall is named for the fact that the water that springs from the rocks in the mountains here is cold enough to split a gourd, even in summer. The multiple ground layers act as a natural filter, creating mineral water with high purity filtered through many months. It is water beloved by many and one of the top springs in Japan’s 100 Best Springs. Flowers bloom in all four seasons around the arbor, with the beautiful hydrangeas of June being particularly intoxicating. About 15 minutes on foot from JR Kaminaka Station.

Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
