Nunobiki waterfalls
Chuo Ward
Kobe, Hyogo


Take the Seishin Yamate Subway line and get off at Shin-Kobe Station. Walk out and behind the station and follow the signs to Nunobiki Falls.


The revered Nunobiki Falls has been the subject of art, poetry and worship for centuries – some of the poems are reproduced on stone tablets at the site. The waterfalls, whose name comes from their draped cloth-like appearance, are divided into four main sections (the longest plunging 43m from top to bottom).

Nunobiki is one of Japan's three most famous waterfalls...and definitely worth the (brief) hike.
