This Trip Features;

  • Fukiware Falls; Japan's version of Niagara Falls is 7 meters high and 30 meters wide with rapid stream gushing down from both sides and hitting the river bottom is a spectacular sight. Seen form the bedrock above them, the falls make a powerful impression. The autumn foliage is also a must-see.
  • Konaka Otaki; a waterfall that reaches 96 meters at its largest height. The surrounding trees display autumn leaves around late October-early November offering a scenic view.
  • Takatsu Gorge; known as "Yabakei in Kanto region", this gorge holds a spectacular vista especially during the autumn foliage.
