  • Stunning Seasonal Beauty

    "From a gentle trickle of water making its way down the four levels of cliffs to roaring rapids, Fukuroda Falls is constantly changing. From the lush new greenery of Spring, cool mountain air of Summer, fiery Autumn leaves and frozen curtain of water in mid-Winter, Fukuroda Falls has a unique face for every season. "
  • Frozen Falls

    During the harsh Winter months, the ever-changing Fukuroda Falls is briefly frozen into a stunning spectacle of pure white ice. Visitors can observe daring ice climbers traversing the cliff of frozen water using ice axes. *The falls may not freeze depending on weather conditions.

Fukuroda Falls is known as one of Japan’s ‘Three Great Waterfalls’ and it’s not hard to see why. Water cascades over four levels of rocky cliff face, earning it the alternative name of ‘Yodo no Taki’ meaning ‘falls four times’. The falls are particularly beautiful during the Autumn when the surrounding mountains are transformed by the fiery reds and oranges of the Autumn foliage. Fukuroda Falls is said to be one of the three great waterfalls of Japan. If you can’t make it during the Autumn, don’t worry – during the Winter, the falls freeze over in a stunning icy spectacle, and the cool spray of the rushing water makes them a great place to escape the heat of the Japanese summer. The Fukuroda Falls area is also the start of several beginner-friendly hiking trails which are a great way to explore more of northern Ibaraki’s stunning mountain seriously. If hiking isn’t your thing, head to one of the soba noodle restaurants or souvenir shops at the base of the falls, or sample some of the area’s famous apple pie!
