Yonako Great Falls

Marvel at the breathtaking sight of two waterfalls spilling from a steep cliff in Suzaka, Nagano

The Yonako Great Falls consist of the 85-meter Fudo Falls, flowing down thunderously in the quiet valley, and the 80-meter Gongen Falls, a misty cascade like a silk curtain, with their sources in Mount Nekodake and Mount Azumayasan, respectively. The two waterfalls create a breathtaking sight against a sheer cliff in a hidden valley. The two great falls are designated as Places of Scenic Beauty by the Japanese government.

The sublime beauty of waterfalls and autumn foliage

The area is known as one of the best autumn foliage sites in Nagano, and the beauty of the waterfalls as the surrounding leaves become vibrant with autumn colors is a sight to behold. Revel in the red and yellow hues of the trees and leaves making the scenery even more stunning. The walking pathway en route to the waterfalls also offer a beautiful view of foliage over a mountain stream.
