Varsha wrote a lovely article about the waterfalls in Izu and I finally got the chance to visit the falls myself—what a great hidden spot in the middle of the forest! The drive to the falls was already spectacular. We took road 414 coming from Shimoda, instead of the coastal road 135, and all of a sudden we were surrounded by the fresh lush green fields and hills I heard Southern Izu was famous for. If you want to enjoy the cherry blossoms in the area, this is best in February or March; for the Firefly Festival go around late June or early July. Now enjoy my view of the falls!
