One of the three biggest waterfalls in Japan, with a 133m fall, 13m width, and a 10m deep pool at its base. Every year on July 9th and December 27th the sacred ropes used for worship at the top of the falls are replaced. And visitors can pay their respects on New Year's Eve when the falls are lit up.
