🤽🏻♀️Refreshing Takihata Springwater Waterfalls Hike/滝畑ダムハイキング🤽🏻♀️
Join us and beat the summer heat as we visit (and swim or put your feet in if you want) in one of the most scenic waterfalls!
This will be an easy walk on rural mountain roads along the near-pristine Ishikawa River. We’ll take our time to enjoy the scenery and then swim in the Kotaki Waterfall and its plunge pool.
Bring plenty of water and a bento. There are a couple of vending machines and small stores along the way, but they only sell snacks.
Check out our video of the stunning waterfalls (all in privacy at this hidden gem): https://youtu.be/3fDrRb_6oJk
You will also need swimwear (if you want to swim…you can just dip your feet in:) , a towel and shoes that you can take into a river as we will have to wade upstream to reach Kotaki Waterfall and its pool. A silly floatation device may also be fun.
Here are some great photos of when we went last time: https://www.facebook.com/pg/oppleosaka/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2596502903935300
Sunscreen is also recommended.
