The Fukuroda Falls are known as one of the" "Three Great Waterfalls" "of Japan, and it is not difficult to see why. The water tumbles over a four-level cliff, giving it the alternate name" "Yodo no Taki "", which means "" four times a waterfall "".
The falls are particularly beautiful in autumn, when the surrounding mountains are adorned with the fiery red and orange autumn colors. In winter, the falls freeze over in a breathtaking ice spectacle and the cool spray of the rushing water also makes them a popular place to escape the heat of summer.
The Fukuroda Falls area is also the starting point for several beginner-friendly hiking trails, which offer a great opportunity to explore more of Northern Ibaraki's breathtaking mountain landscape.
