Autumn in Fukuroda Falls, Ibaraki

Fall beauty at one of Japan's most renowned waterfalls

A two and a half hour drive from Chiba, Fukuroda Falls is one of Japan's three most renowned waterfalls.

When I went in early November the leaves hadn't quite changed color fully but it was still breathtaking. When the weather is cold enough, the falls actually freeze resulting in a beautiful cascade of frozen ice, or hyobaku, in Japanese.
