Expected to see a bigger waterfall with a nice viewing spot. Turned out to be a rather small waterfall that you view from either the side of the road or across the road. There’s a small parking lot for about 5 cars across the road...More

This is a good waterfall in Maruo. 15~20 min walk from Kirishima Onsen Ichiba(Hot Spring Market). The observation deck is quarantined for the safety. But, it's okay to watch from other points. There are very rare visitors. Good to watch 5~10 min.

We found it through google map and stopped over along the road for a few photographs. We enjoyed the view and it was memorable.

It should be a waterfall of hot spring. When I arrived there, I could not see any steam. Perhaps the weather was not cold enough. You can drive there and park at the roadside. Or just walk there from Kirishima Onsen Market.

It is very cold in winter. You can access easily by foot.Unless you go to the hot spring nearby, it is okay but not a must.

When you are experiencing Kirishima Spa resort a must see spot. It's easy to reach by car and even by foot if you are in the area. You don't need to trek or climb to enjoy this nice waterfall. It's definitely worth a picture!

It is a beautiful waterfall near Maruo Onsen. You can take a walk while waiting for a bus, for example. The kiosk nearby is temporary closed.

The advantage of taking a taxi (or driving yourself) is that you can stop and admire the waterfall. On the road from the station to the Kirishima Spa Resort. Additionally if has been raining you will get an opportunity of seeing a good flow of...More
