The Three Greatest Falls in Japan!
Nachi Falls, Kegon Falls, and Fukuroda Falls
There are many waterfalls in Japan. I bet you must have seen a few in your previous Japan trips. Which one is your most favorite falls? Today, we will show you the three greatest falls in Japan. See if you have already visited any of them so far!
01. Nachi Falls in Wakayama Prefecture
On our way to the famous Nachi Falls, we bumped into two cute girls who were in the traditional Heian period costumes. Of course we could not miss this special chance to take a picture with them. Maybe you can try to rent the same costumes and experience the Kumano Nachi Taisha in a different way!
Nachi Falls is located in Nachikatsuura in Wakayama Prefecture. It has a drop of 133 meters, and it is the tallest waterfall with a single drop of water in Japan! We were told that there is 1 ton of water falling down each second! That's so amazing!
Actually there is a great photo spot to include both the Nachi Falls and the Seiganto-ji in the picture. Look how nice the picture was taken!
How about going up the tower and get a closer look of the famous Nachi Falls!
