Urami no Taki (Urami Waterfall)


Urami Waterfall is in a valley of the mountainous north-eastern area of Omura. The waterfall is 30 meters (100 ft.) high and acquired its name by a unique attribute. It is called Urami no Taki because it used to be possible to walk behind the fall via a natural path to see the view from behind. In English, ura translates to “behind,” mi means “to see,” taki is “waterfall.” So translated, it means “a waterfall in which you can see from behind.”
There are 50 varieties of rhododendrons in this valley, and 5,000 rhododendrons bloom from the beginning of April through the beginning of May. It costs 200yen to enter the park.
