赤目四十八滝 Akame-sijuuhachi-taki Akame 48 Waterfalls

Jp En


Akame 48 (Shijuhachi) Waterfalls are located in Akame Town, Nabari City, Mie prefecture, and are part of a beauty spot where a pure stream runs through deep forest.

The river leading to the waterfalls runs east to west from Mie prefecture to Nara prefecture. There is a 4 kilometer walk along the banks of the river, from where you can observe the beauty of each season: cherry blossom, summer verdure and fall leaves, in addition to the waterfalls.

The name Akame comes from the story that Enno Gyoja, a founder of the Shugen-do sect, saw the Fudo King riding a cow with red eyes (in Japanese, 'akame' means 'red eyes').

Akame's five major waterfalls (Fudo, Sente, Nunobiki, Ninai and Biwa) are included among Akame's 48 waterfalls. Akame 48 Waterfalls have also been selected as among Japan's 100 major waterfalls, 100 best forest-bathing spots and 100 best river walks. You can happily hike or take it easy in the woods.
