Waterfall of Mino, Mino

4.3
After an easygoing hike along the Mino River, take in the picturesque cascade of Waterfall of Mino. First written about 1,300 years ago, En-No-Gyoja (the founder of ancient Japanese mountain worship) meditated beneath these falls for three years before going on to establish various temples. At their most spectacular after a day of rain, the falls plummet 33 m (108 ft) down the sheer rock into the river below, measuring about 5 m (16 ft) wide. You'll need to walk about 3 km (1.9 mi) along a paved path to reach the falls, so bring along some water and wear comfortable footwear. Look out for the insectarium along the way, which endeavors to display some of the surrounding environment's 3,000 species of insects.

  • An organization of eleven people. The secretary asked the volunteer to provide tourist information in advance. This was good. Four volunteers came. I was able to hear a lot of stories along the way. The place related to Hideo Noguchi. My eyes get hot.

  • I've seen more than 100 a year for a period of time. I do not go easily now, but I would like you to see the beautiful scenery in the autumn leaves season. However, during the season, please be prepared for traffic jams with a large number of people and cars. As long as you walk up from the waterfall and stroll in the mountains is fun. The only regret is that the waterfall is not natural and some pumps are given by the way the Minoh Tunnel was built. It has nothing to do with the scenery, but it is different from the old days.
