Dangyo-no-taki Falls


Dangyo-no-taki Falls

This tranquil waterfall is located deep in the forest in Tsuma, on the west coast of the island. It is not only a fantastic place to enjoy serene nature; you can also drink spring water that has been designated one of the Top 100 Exquisite and Well-Conserved Waters of Japan by the Ministry of the Environment.


This waterfall is also the location of Dangyō Shrine, and the water here has been revered as sacred ‘winning water’ since long ago. Even today before traditional competitions such as Bull Sumō, people come to visit the shrine and drink the water. You can also enjoy the scenery from behind the waterfall on a ledge in the cliff face.
