Nunobiki Falls - Review

The importance of this series of waterfalls for Japanese history and Japanese literature cannot be overstated. There are four separate major cascades known as Ondaki, Mendaki, Tsusumigadaki, and Izumoki, of which the first is most popular and also the tallest at 43 meters. Though most people enjoy the view of the waterfalls from the cable car above, visitors can also get up close to them from the beautiful forest promenade that courses alongside the water. It is relatively crowd free and makes for a very peaceful hike. Entrance to the waterfall can be found from the side of ShinKobe Station that faces away from the city. It is best to get your directions clear before setting out as the signs are all in Japanese. As you climb uphill you will also come across a shrine.

Nunobiki Falls, Kobe Reviews

  • Amazing waterfall! You need to go on a bit hiking activity, but it is worth it. I even went here bringing stroller and a 3-year old boy! He loves waterfall. Make sure your body is fit and you wear proper shoes! Also, DON'T BRING YOUR SUITCASE HERE! I saw a couple bringing their suitcases and they were struggling bringing them on a hike and climbed a lot of stairs.

  • Not the most intuitive route to this waterfall as it is located behind a train station. Roughly a 15 minute uphill hike, the scenery is refreshing and breath taking. One of my favorite memories of Japan

  • Beautiful waterfall near the Shinkansen station. About a 15 minute hike up a small mountain area. Just follow the signs and you'll find it fine. If you keep on hiking upwards you'll get to a small observational area to view the city. Definitely worth it if you like hiking and seeing the city!

  • It’s a small waterfall with fresh air and great views. I drive to the point google map guild me, and I still have to walk about 10 minutes to the river. There are all stairs that makes me very tired. Only few peoples there, only some travelers and local hikers. You may only stay 15mins there.

  • Best appreciated from Shin Kobe Ropeway. It was a rainy cloudy day when we visited but we were glad we made the effort. Access is easy from the train station. We went to top of ropeway . The car holds 4 to 6 people but it was not busy so we had the cable car to ourselves. The views across the city to Osaka when up the top are great. It is very cold at the top, take some warm clothing. The herb garden is pretty but it would not be worth the trek just for it. There is some food available and toilets. You can walk down or catch return cable car. It would take over 1 hr to walk. It could be slippery good shoes necessary.
