Autumn waterfall ibaraki prefecture

Hidden away in the remote hills of the town of Daigo in northwestern Ibaraki Prefecture is Fukuroda Falls (袋田の滝, Fukuroda-no-taki), a 120-meter-tall cascading waterfall, regarded as one of the three most beautiful in Japan alongside Nachi Falls in Wakayama Prefecture and Kegon Falls in Tochigi Prefecture.

While many visitors flock to the falls in early November to see them amongst peak autumn color foliage, they can be uniquely attractive in each season. Winter in particular can offer the rare chance to see the entire cascade frozen over (between late December and mid February in freezing conditions). Also in winter (November to January), colorful nightly illuminations of the falls are held incorporating music.
