We decided to stop by and do this hike/walk to see one of Japan’s top 100 waterfalls. This was a nice little hike and got to try some wasabi treats at the bottom. Great view of the falls as well.

You'll have to take a cab from Shuzhenji but its well worth it. The waterfall is pristine. Wild wasabi grows in the water which is filled with trout.

Pleasant stop for an hour. Fascinating to see wasabi growing. Not really a day out, but worth the trip.

Pretty decent waterfall about 15 minutes by car from Shuzenji. There are also buses that travel between the coast and Shuzenji stopping here if you use public transport. Free admission, free parking, short walk--good enough for a brief visit for those who are in the...More
