Located upstream of Jakotsugawa River in Kowakudani, the tiny waterfall is 3-meter high and 20-meter wide. Chisuji Falls, loosely translated to "the waterfall of a thousand threads", got its name because water spills out from in between the rocks in several threads. You can see a dense growth of moss on the rocks behind the clear stream. Around the waterfall, you can also find maple trees which look amazing come autumn. The place is also famous for wild cherry trees called "hitome manpon". In early July, the Genji fireflies come out, and a fantastic sight can be seen. It also gained popularity in recent years as a power spot. All these, coupled with its accessibility on foot from Kowakudani Station on Hakone Tozan Railway, make the waterfall a popular place to visit.
