  • Probably one of the best waterfalls I've been to be to honest, and that's saying something. The top of the waterfall has very good views of the surrounding mountains, which is especially scenic at sundown and sunrise. There are also many hiking tracks branching off from the waterfall from the top and bottom. Speaking of the bottom, as you make your way down you get to walk along a path that takes you right next to the waterfall, which is very good for unique angles. Then at the bottom there's a shop and more good views of the waterfall.

  • Very beautiful scenery. The waterfall is cascading and a lovely spot for photos. The boardwalk is nice to take in the view of the forest. The trail to the lake is a good walk and gives you a sense of calm. If you need to warm up or get something to eat, there is an on-site store and eatery.

  • Yudaki waterfall is massive, with the Yukawa river falling 75m over the length of the falls. A viewing platform is located at the base of the falls where one can enjoy taking photos of the waterfall. The steps up on the eastern side of the waterfall, a short but very steep climb brings you to the top of the Yudaki waterfall.

  • Yudaki falls. Has nice views, must climb several meters to go to the top. Has convinience store. Unfortunately I came after the autumn leaves has fallen.

  • Amazing idyllic scenere, great for relaxing walk and a nature weekend getaway. Having a motor transport is a huge bonus!
