In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Hyakuhironotaki Falls is one of Tokyo's most impressive waterfalls. Located in the nature-rich Okutama valley, this waterfall is most popular in summer and autumn when the leaves are the most colorful. With water plunging down from a height of 40 meters, Hyakuhronotaki Falls gives you some serious soul-cleansing.
Getting to the waterfall is not easy, however. Hiking to the spot takes about 1.5 hours from the trailhead, and the trail can get quite steep. Be well-equipped and carry plenty of water and snacks.
