Melt water and spring water from Mt. Chokai cascades down this 100-meter-long and 57.4-meter-high three-step waterfall. It has been selected as one of Japan’s Top 100 Waterfalls and Important Natural Monument and scenic spot of Akita Prefecture. It is particularly famous for the flow of a width of 3 to 30 meters at the waterfall basin of 3,000 square meters. The magnificent amount of white water flowing boasts an incredible sound. The fall is surrounded by deciduous broad‐leaved trees, making the area famous for viewing the fall leaves. The colorful reds and yellows with the flowing waterfall makes it an unmissable mystical sight.
