Ice Falls / Hyobaku

In the winter, you can see “Hyobaku”, a phenomenon where the entire Fukuroda Waterfall is frozen. Between late December to February, the cascading waterfalls have the chance to freeze entirely if temperatures are cold enough. During this period, the official website updates daily “Falls Freezing” updates with images to show the current state of Fukuroda Falls. It is recommended to visit in the morning when it is colder, for a higher chance of viewing the frozen falls.

Observatory Deck

The massive 3-stage observatory deck allows visitors to enjoy the falls up close. Visitors first walk through the 276-meter long passage tunnel to reach the deck, where you can take an elevator to the top to enjoy a panoramic view. The bottom two floors allow a closer view of the falls at different angles. Try the suspension bridge on your way back to experience walking above the base of the waterfall.

Winter Illumination

Every year between early November to late January, Fukuroda Falls holds a winter illumination event. The area near the falls and the tunnel will be spectacularly lit up, creating a beautiful night time scene. The tunnel will also be decorated with light structures, a sight that can only be seen during this event.
