This was a wonderful visit to the Fukuroda Falls when the water was flowing. We came here with our son Jacob who lives in Kasama near Mito. A lovely way to walk the falls includes wandering past the shop and restaurant and walking through the...More

The falls are pretty when the leaves are changing, but it's a little overrated compared to photos I see. Maybe the pictures are from a few years ago, but there was not a lot of water. Go early, because it got really crowded.

(Nov2016) The actual waterfall is OK. Sufficient volume of water falling to be pleasing to look at. We went there in late autumn to try to see autumn colours (red leaf), but turns out this is not really a good place to see large expanses...More

Take a train to Mito and change there for a local train to Fukuroda. That's about three hours.
