Minoo Taki: Selected as One of Japan's Top 100 Waterfalls
Minoo Waterfall is an impressive waterfall of 5 meter width and 33 meter height. It is selected as one of Japan's top 100 waterfalls and attracts many tourists every year. The best season to visit is during autumn from mid-November to early December every year. The leaves turning yellow and red in combination with the waterfall is a must-see view.
"Minoo Koen Night Light Up" can be seen during the "Summer Fest Minoo Koen," which is held every year in Minoo Koen. It has a surreal atmosphere, in contrast to the day. A stroll through the evening breeze during the hot and humid summer is sure to become a good memory.
