It is very beautiful and you can get right up close to it and take photos. You can even climb onto the rocks if that's your thing.

Close to the road but a world away - a really high waterfall with millions of dragon flies patrolling in front of it!. Plenty of room to sit and stare.

勢いが感じられる滝です!雨の強い日に見に行って、遠くからでも飛沫が来て水圧を感じました。自然の勢力は凄いなあと思いました。必見の滝です! You can really feel the power of the waterfall! I went on a rainy day, so even from far away I could feel the spray and pressure of the water. I thought the power of nature was really amazing. It's a must-see spot!

Big water fall, and even if the water make a big noise, it is a really quiet place. If you come early in the morning, you will have less tourists !

easily accessible, just a hundred meter from the small parking lot. Nice close up view of a beautiful waterfall, can feel the water droplets on your face in the hot summer time!

It isn't very easy to get to without a car, but it is definitely worth a trip. It was really beautiful, and a lot bigger than I was expecting.

Great for a pick nick in a cool breeze. Easily accessible from the round-the-island road: small parking lot and short footpath. Plenty of space to watch and enjoy the cool breeze.
