Nabegataki Falls, Oguni-machi

4.5
The picturesque falls of Nabegataki Falls allow visitors to peek behind the dramatic curtain of water and explore the hidden cave behind. Situated a short walk from its parking lot, you'll have to navigate some steps and uneven ground to reach the falls, but once you arrive, the dramatic natural composition of the cascade affords many photo opportunities, both from behind the falls and outside them. Although the path leads behind the water, you should expect to get a little wet, so consider bringing along a rain coat for your trip here. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Oguni-machi trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • It is a popular spot in Oguni town. It is a rare waterfall that can go around the back side of the waterfall. It became famous because it was used in commercials, and many people visit it in summer.

  • On September 24th, we took a day trip to a famous spot in Kumamoto. The place is called "Nabega falls" which can enter the back of the waterfall. There are many hot springs scattered around the area, and I felt that it was an unbearable place for hot spring lovers. I thought that it was a place that existed naturally, but it was a tourist spot where the entrance fee 300 yen occurred when I arrived. From the story of the person who had been a tourist guide, it seems to have been a judgment that it is possible to use it for environmental conservation by collecting the parking lot of about about ?? In order to go to the falls, we took the form of access from the side of the toll booth, and we also had a good time to go to the falls.

  • One of the best places to cool down the heat in this deadly hot summer in Japan!!! Mostly covered in shadow of trees making the place more relaxing... There’s like a nice and shallow pond under the falls that is very good to make yourself swim (with your kids also!). The scenery is surely beautiful. It is a couple hours driving from the central Kumamoto but is worth visiting!!!
  • Nabegataki falls was awesome, possible to watch both outside & inside. Strongly recommend those who visit this area.
