Sanjo Falls

A waterfall that has been selected as one of the "100 Best Waterfalls in Japan" over the upper reaches of the Tadami River, which originates from the water of Ozegahara and Ozenuma, and is said to have the largest amount of water in Japan. It is one of the largest waterfalls in Japan that flows down from a head of 100m, and the power of the thawed water in early June is particularly impressive. It is said that it is especially beautiful when the leaves are colored, and there are steep mountain roads that you can use to access the observatory, so you need to have enough climbing equipment.
