Nachi Falls

Nachi Falls

Since long ago, the Nachi Falls have been revered by many as the object of worship of Hiro Jinja Shrine, an auxiliary of Kumano Nachi Taisha Shrine. It is also known as Ichi-no-taki, and is one of the three great waterfalls of Japan. With a drop of 133 meters (the longest in Japan), a width of 13 meters, and a basin that is 10 meters deep, this famous waterfall flows down from the depths of the Kumano massif. On New Year’s Eve, the stunning scene is lit up for all to see. The rocks at the mouth of the fall are split into three, and as the water falls down in three streaks, it is also known as Misuji-no-taki, or the “three-streak fall.”
