NIPPON Kichi - 日本吉


銚子ヶ滝 Tyoushiga-taki Toshiga Waterfall

Jp En

The name of Toshiga Waterfall comes from the resemblance of the waterfall's shape to a toshi bottle of sake.

Toshiga Waterfall is approximately 48m high and 27m wide, and is one of the most prominent waterfalls of the Adatara Mountains.

There is a legend that a dragon god lives deep within the basin of the waterfall and would bring rain to the region if a young woman was sacrificed. It is said that after hearing this, the daughter of the regional lord plunged herself into the basin, and saved the lives of countless villagers who were suffering from drought.

Due to the abundant water flow and high water quality, part of the river is blocked in order to secure water for daily use, irrigation and aquafarming.

There is a hiking course near the waterfall; it passes through a rich natural area, well maintained with rest spots and signposts. It is a popular spot for cooling off in the summer, and viewing the reddening leaves in autumn.
