I made a returned visit this autumn to this favourite waterfall of mine in just to see it among the colorful foliage. Great and still roaring with all it's might in the sudden 2 to 3 m drop in elevation! There was quite a big...More

I enjoyed breakfast under the falls. The weather was perfect and the sun shined just right on the falls.

We visited these falls as part of a river walk. This came at the end of our walk. Lovely to see in the context of the river. So tranquil on a summer’s day

As a part of the Oirase Stream walk this waterfall is a pleasant part but don't make it the focus of your trip. The walk is great and this watfall is on one of the sections.

The colourful autumn leaves canopy of this place is the highlight during our visit in November. It was a long walk, but it was worth every step of it.

This lovely waterfall, while not all that spectacular, is a highlight of the hike along this rushing mountain stream. Hike as much of it as you can, and this waterfall is a great place to linger and take photos.
