A very tall waterfall (tallest in Japan) located in the middle of a mountainous forest, Nachi Falls is an excellent taste of the natural beauty of Japan that is often missed by tourists only visiting the cities. It can be seen both from a distance...More

Perhaps the icy January cold didn't help but I was a little underwhelmed. I thought the waterfall would be bigger. The area is beautiful and I do not regret going but I would caution against making the journey there if that is your sole purpose...More

From the Nachi-San bus stop just take a short walk down the stairs to the observation deck to view the falls. There is a free viewing area as well as a paid stage area where you can pay 300 yen to get a little bit...More

A very impressive waterfall next to Nachi shrine , 133 meters high , the highest in Japan . Going down 150 stairs , you reach the best view point . Also can be seen from the hill of the shrine . Admission free.

Fantastic - amazing end to our hike. You can get right up close and even drink from the source (in your own special dish).

The waterfall can be accessed by bus (easy, most economical). We took the bus from Kii Katsuura station but instead of going directly to the waterfall (Nachi no Taki mae bus stop), we wanted to experience a small part of the sacred trail so we...More

The view was just breathtaking, so beautiful and spiritual. The rock road was hard to walk but I enjoyed the historical beauty. I found people don't speak English there that much but they are really king and nice. Most of them understand some English words....More
