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.

  • A beautiful place to visit and only a short walk from Shin Kobe Station. Word of warning that it is a steep hike up to the top of the falls but the experience and the views are definitely worth it.

  • Beautiful place for a hike! It has got some elevation, but the views of the waterfalls and the city skyline are worth it.

  • So close to local train stations that it would be a shame to not stop and see. Barely 10 minutes walk from the local high speed station. Quite a steep walk though. You can continue walking up to the botanical gardens up the mountain but probably better to take the gondola up and walk down past the falls.

  • Very lovely waterfall so accessible from the city. Just a 15-minute walk from Shin-Kobe Station. The other waterfalls up the trail are also quite nice but require a more arduous hike.

  • Interesting hiking experience! If you venture deep inside, you’ll be very near to the falls.
