Komadome Falls


Considered Nasu’s foremost waterfall, Komadome Falls is three meters wide and falls approximately twenty meters from a cliff on the Yosasa River.

Once, it was a waterfall that can only be seen after the leaves have fallen, but along with the establishment of Nasu Heisei no Mori Forest in 2011, as well as a falls observatory, it became possible to catch a glimpse of Komagome Falls throught the seasons (closed during winter).

The observation deck allows you to see a full view of the waterfall from above, which is surrounded by emerald green trees in the early summer and a rainbow of colorful leaves in the fall.

Around the end of October, when the autumn leaves are at their peak, the contrast of red and yellow in the valleys together with the clear blue of the waterfalls is a spectacular sight for visitors.”

Enjoy walking through the beautiful nature and sacred atmosphere

The little gorge formed by an eruption of nearby Mt. Nantai is a uniquely scenic spot. A row of approximately 70 Jizos are lined up along the south bank of the river. The group of Jizos is called “Baké-Jizo” because it is said that they are uncountable; if you try to count them, each time you will end up with a different number. Legend has it that the Sanskrit character “Kanman” on an upstream cliff was inscribed by Kobo Daishi, the founder of Shingon Buddhism, by throwing his brush. The Nikko Botanical Garden is on the opposite shore of the Jizos, and visitors can enjoy the scenic beauty in the seasons of spring verdant greens, autumn colours and snowy Jizos.
