Nunobiki is one of five waterfalls included in the Akame Gobaku Falls. At 30 m tall, it is the largest. It has a certain sense of mysterious beauty as it appears as if a single sheet covers the flowing water. The plunge pool at the base of the waterfall also measures 30 m in depth.
Senju Waterfall also belongs to the Akame Gobaku Falls. The origin of its name (senju meaning thousand hands) comes from either the falling water resembling a thousand hands as it falls through the rocks on its descent, or looking like a Buddhist image of the goddess Kannon with a thousand hands. It is 15 m tall, and at just 20 minutes walking distance from the entrance to Akame 48 Waterfall area, it is relatively easy to access.
