Why Chisuji Falls is special ?
Chisuji Fall (千条の滝, chisujinotaki) is located right next to Horaien in Kowakidani. It is 3 meters in height and 20 meters in width. The fall itself is very small but the landscape with the waterfall is very beautiful and spectacular. Especially, in summer you can enjoy great color of green leaves, and in fall, you can enjoy beautiful autumn leaves. There are many hiking courses around this fall.
This fall is found by Mr. Enomoto about 100 years ago. Because the fall has many small waterfalls which look like strings, he named this fall "Chisuji" which means 1000 lines. It is very spiritual place.
What to explore at Chisuji Falls?

When you exit the station, there is one little sign at the road. You have to continue on the road ahead that slopes upward only after you have memorized the name of the falls in Japanese. That one little sign is the only one you'll see in English.

Tips for you
I found these falls on Trip Advisor and I'm so glad I got off at the Station for the short walk. When you exit the station, there is one little sign at the road. Continue on the road ahead that slopes upward only after you've memorized the name of the falls in Japanese. That one little sign is the only one you'll see in English.
