Otodome Falls in Fujinomiya

One of Japan's 100 greatest waterfalls

Otodome Falls is one of two great waterfalls within walking distance of each other on the Shiba River in Fujinomiya (the other one is Shiraito Falls). Otodome Falls roars powerfully over a cliff face and falls 25 meters into the pool below. It is one of the most popular sightseeing attractions in Shizuoka, and ranks as on of Japan's '100 Greatest Waterfalls'. If you go early in the morning you can avoid the crowds. The best time of year to visit is probably autumn, but I went there in summer. There are souvenir shops, restaurants and an information center on the main trail to view the waterfall.
