A waterfall, scenic beauty

Kumano-Nachi Taisha is the main shrine of over 4000 Kumano Shrines dotting Japan. This waterfall stands within the holy area, The grandest fall in Japan is 133m-tall, 13m-wide at the mouth, where water begins to fall, and the plunge pool is 10m-deep, and pours over 1 ton/second of water through three wedges which merges as one fall, thus called “Three Stream Fall.” It is Wakayama’s notable scenic spot that represents the traditional faith at Nachi Mountain - “Water is the mother of life.”

At the best viewing spot close to the magnificent fall, there is a platform, which you can use with admissions (adult 300yen, elementary and middle schoolers 200yen) without reservation. A sip of the clear water in the pool is believed to grant long life.

The source of the fall is the water from Mt. Ogumotorisan Ridges deep in the Nachi Mountain that feeds many other waterfalls. This realm is designated as Yoshino-Kumano National Park Special Area. The primeval forest, a national natural treasure, is nearby, offering a great place for hiking on the way from the Shine.

    日本神道教是萬物皆神論,瀑布前方的飛瀧神社是專門祭祀瀑布神靈的。

    日本落差最大的瀑布也是日本三大瀑布之一,相傳瀑布的水又稱延命水,喝下去後會延年益壽。

    那智瀑布很壯觀 看這瀑布顯得自己很渺小,透過飄灑出來的水珠洗禮 身心靈都淨空 放鬆
