Nov.

This huge waterfall, also commonly known as the “Niagara of the Orient”, has a height of 7 meters and a width of 30 meters! It was designated as a national treasure in 1936. The origin of its name comes from the fact that the Katashina River - the source of the waterfall - flows between the tuff and the granite, gradually eroding the soft rock and creating a number of crevices. These crevices cause the waterfall to splash down impressively between towering rocks. It is a popular place to go in summer due its cooler temperature.
