Chosen as one of the "100 Best Waterfalls in Japan," Dangyō-no-taki flows down from the middle of a curved cliff face about 40 m high, falling on both sides of Dangyō Shrine. On the right is the male waterfall, and on the left the female.
Two large Japanese cedars tower over the parking area, creating a mysterious atmosphere. Walk between them and through the torii shrine gate, continuing along the path until you reach the waterfalls. The path leads through a Japanese cedar forest, with a stream quietly flowing nearby.
