Sogi-no-Taki Park (曽木の滝公園)
A park named after Sogi Waterfall. Sogi Waterfall boasts a majestic scale; nicknamed the Niagara of the East, it has also been selected as one of Japan's most beautiful areas in the Heisei period. The entire waterfall area is a nature park and the fall foliage during the peak period from late November to early December is fantastic. A Maple Festival is held in the park each year in late November and during this time events such as the waterfall being illuminated at night delight the many visitors who come.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
