We visited the place... More

This is one of the biggest falls out in this area. There are many waterfalls in the Kirishima mountain range, but this is one of the highest rated. It is most famous (according to the signage) for it's pot holes at the top of the waterfall. You can walk out on a bridge to take photos, but I suggest also... More
