We hiked up to the fall from the town, but it is easily accessible by car, too, with a several hundred meter walk up from the car park. The fall is quite impressive, in a beautiful natural setting.

there is a bus that takes people here, but we walked from Hirayuo bus terminal. you can't get very close to the falls. they are beautiful in the winter when they are frozen.
