Jp En

The Kanba Falls Nature Park is located near Maniwa, in the northwest of Okayama Prefecture. Inside the park, the main waterfall is 110m high and 20m wide, and has such an abundant volume of water that the sound of it falling can be heard from the trail far from the waterfall itself. Kanba Falls is known as one of the greatest waterfalls in western Japan and is one of Japan's top 100 waterfalls.

The nature park is also the habitat of some 200 wild monkeys that can sometimes be seen by visitors. The valley near the waterfall is a beautiful wooded area, with deciduous trees such as katsura, zelkova, itaya-maple and inu-shide, as well as rarer trees such as the ke-guwa and iwa-shide. The park is beautiful in any season, but especially in the fresh-green season of spring and the red-foliage season of autumn. Every year, hundreds of tourist come to visit the waterfall.
