Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
The picturesque falls of Nabegataki Falls allow visitors to peek behind the dramatic curtain of water and explore the hidden cave behind. Situated a short walk from its parking lot, you'll have to navigate some steps and uneven ground to reach the falls, but once you arrive, the dramatic natural composition of the cascade affords many photo opportunities, both from behind the falls and outside them. Although the path leads behind the water, you should expect to get a little wet, so consider bringing along a rain coat for your trip here.

  • This waterfall is the most accessible with easy walking paths. From the carpark, it only takes 3-5mins to walk here. The waterfall is breathtaking and the sound is amazing. We took many photos...  more »
  • This is one of the easiest walk and be the closest to a waterfall. Entrance fee of 300 Yen is well worth it because the toilet is clean and the walkway is well maintained. Must visit on your way to....  more »
  • One of the best places to cool down the heat in this deadly hot summer in Japan!!! Mostly covered in shadow of trees making the place more relaxing... There’s like a nice and shallow pond under the falls that is very good to make yourself swim (with your kids also!). The scenery is surely beautiful. It is a couple hours driving from the central Kumamoto but is worth visiting!!!
  • Nabegataki falls was awesome, possible to watch both outside & inside. Strongly recommend those who visit this area.
