  •  Nachi Falls is one of the three waterfalls in Japan. This waterfall is also the shinto body of The Hitaki Shrine, betsunomiya of Kumano Nachi Taisha.  It is said that the fall of the waterfall is the best in Japan. We didn't get close to this waterfall, but we couldn't see the back of the building of Aokishi toji from the front of nachi taisha's office, the appearance of the three-story pagoda of Aokishi toji temple, and the appearance that flows down the middle of a deeper primeval forest. I was able to enjoy the wonderful appearance from many places.

  • A 15-minute walk will take you to Nachi Taisha Shrine. It is enshrined as a god body of The Waterfall itself as The Hitaki Shrine, betsunomiya of Kumano Nachi Taisha. There seem to be a lot of people who pray for the life-prolonging disaster. It is easy on the road of the descent from Nachi Taisha, but because there is considerably a rough stone step where the step is steep, shoes that are easy to walk are necessary. Through the torii, we walk ed the approach of the dense Osugi, with the sound of the waterfall and the sign of water. It is said that the mountain in the vicinity is a natural monument of the country as nachi primitive forest. It was a solemn place which seemed to be a sacred place from ancient times. It is said that the height is 133m and the amount of water flowing down is usually about one ton per second. The vicinity is filled with negative ions with fine splashes. It is overwhelmed by a big, splendid waterfall. For 300 yen for adults, you can go to the waterfall stage and see the waterfall at close range. From the "Nachi-no-Takimae" bus stop, you can go back to Nachi Station and Kiikatsuura Station, but it's one flight per hour, so you should look at the timetable on kumano bus website in advance.
