Fukiwarenotaki Falls, Numata

4.0
A rapid stream gushing down and hitting the river bottom with huge force will mesmerize you and make you feel like you'll get sucked into the mouth of Fukiwarenotaki Falls. About 7 m (21 ft) high and 30 m (90 ft) wide, the waterfall got its name after a giant split rock at its mouth, which creates a complicated rock pattern resembling Niagara Falls. The hiking route to the waterfall takes an hour to complete and you can visit a number of hot springs along the way. Visited by a million people each year, the waterfall sits a 40-minute bus ride from Numata through scenic villages and nature, some three hours from Tokyo by public transport.

  • I walked slowly around the waterfall to enjoy the nature ❗️it was still early for the autumn leaves, but it was a day when I was able to enjoy a glass of beer with the tempura of Maiko in the nearby Old God Hot Spring.

  • I was surprised because I imagined a waterfall that flowed vertically and long without any prior knowledge. There was also a width and height, water falling with tremendous force, sound, splashes, was very powerful. The strange rocks were also strange, and it was like a reduced version of Niagara + Cappadocia.
