Zengoro Waterfall at Mount Norikura
From the observation deck, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the 21.5m high Yoshigoro Waterfall with Mt Norikura in the background. If you are lucky, you can catch a glimpse of a beautiful rainbow overarching the waterfall, reflected by the morning light. Visit the area between April through November for a revitalizing trek in the forest. In winter, you may catch a rare sight of the waterfall frozen!
