Nunobiki Falls

Nunobiki Falls


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. 

Location type

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.
