Janokuchinotaki Falls, Yakushima-cho

5.0
#10 of 13 in Nature in Yakushima-cho
Pack a swimsuit and hike up a narrow mountain trail that leads to Janokuchinotaki Falls, cascading from a granite monolith into an emerald pool. This tranquil spot hidden within a subtropical forest lies off the beaten paths, so don't lose the sight of the pink tape and be careful not to wander off the road. You will have to cross the river several times and go through a swampy area, so wear sturdy shoes. Consider visiting the nearby hot springs on the way back. Find out how to plan Yakushima-cho trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
