Fukube Falls (ふくべの大滝)

 Ishikawa Pref. Hakusanshi Chugu

A waterfall located about midway along the Hakusan Shirakawa-go White Road connecting the Shirakawa-go World Heritage Site in Ishikawa Prefecture with Hida and Takayama in Gifu Prefecture. The waterfall's name is the Japanese name for the bottle guard and is derived from the fall's twin stream form. The scenery created by the 86-meter-long falls is spectacular; occasionally, the nearby road becomes wet from water from the falls. In fall, fall foliage colors the bare rock around the waterfall, and visitors can enjoy the contrast created by the reds, golds, and greens. The best time to enjoy the autumn foliage is from mid- to late October. In most years, the entire length of the road is open from mid-June to around mid-November. Bus tours also often stop at this famous sightseeing destination.
