You walk a short distance to see it on your side and if you have more time there is a way to walk along dirt sidewalks.
数回来ていますが、豪快ながらも神々しく流れ落ちる姿は、何度見ても素晴らしく思いました。外国人観光客もみな、美しさを堪能している様子でした。 more »I've been here a few times, but the sight of the amazing flow down the gods, i thought it was wonderful no matter how many times I watched it. All the foreign tourists seemed to be enjoying the beauty.
Great view and stunning scenery in winter. There's a elevator to go down about 100m for better view. You can see the waterfall basin from there too. They have a free viewing platform on the right side of the elevator for whoever do not wish to pay the elevator fee. No tripod allowed on the viewing platform. I've tried to fly a drone there, but the wind at the time was crazily strong. Great souvenir and snacks shop all nearby.
Breath taking views. During winter you can see the waterfall partially frozen, snow and the trees with no leaves. Overall a beautiful sight that goes perfectly with the lake visit.
