Naena Waterfall has been selected one of Japan’s 100 greatest waterfalls. The force of the water falling 55 metres to the basin and the roar echoing around the surrounding hills has given rise to its nickname “the Earthquake Waterfall”.
The volume of water is at its greatest in spring while the waterfall is a refreshing retreat among the verdant greens of summer before the surrounding hills are filled with autumnal foliage later in the year.
A 15-minute walking path is available from the car park to an observatory. Take a close-up look at the force and roar of the water from the viewing point around the basin.
Naena Waterfall is a starting and finishing point of Myoko Highlands Hiking Trail, a forest trail recommended by the Forest Therapy Society. Enjoy a relaxing nature walk and improve your mental and physical health!
