Masumi-no-taki is a waterfall in the eastern part of Takino Suzuran Hillside National Park in Takino, Minami-ku, Sapporo City, Hokkaido. This waterfall with 18 m high and 20 m wide flows down in the Masumi-no-sawa River, which springs out of 506 m high Mt. Shimamatsuyama. Together with the Ashiribetsu-no-taki Waterfall, the two falls are popular scenic spots in the park. The name “Masu-mi,” in which “masu” literally means “a trout” and “mi” means “to see,” derives from the legend that once a trout swimming up the river looked up at this fall.
As the paved promenade is arranged in the park, you can easily get to the waterfall basin. Standing under the splashes of water is really refreshing. Flowing gently on the rock surface, it gives an elegant impression. Surrounded with fresh greenery in spring or crimson foliage in fall, the waterfall changes its appearance from season to season.
