Kirigataki Waterfalls
A waterfall at the end of the Hatagadaira plateau in the north of Mt. Oginosen. The waterfall having almost 65m water head is located at an altitude of 750m, and water is falling from a 20m-wide small valley formed of Oginosen andesite which had flown to cover underlain breccia layer (debris-avalanche deposits). The water falling from the head becomes a mist, so that there is no waterfall basin. It is designated as a scenic beauty/monument in Hyogo Prefecture. One of the three best waterfalls in Tajima.

ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

The Kirigataki Valley is designated as a scenic beauty in Hyogo Prefecture. Trace a steep path to get to Kirigataki waterfall while viewing the beautiful valley, wild flowers, and great trees of horse chestnut and katsura. Care must be taken because there are slippery wooden bridges and valley walks. Two paths are provided to Mt. Oginosen. Beautiful beech woods are spread from Kozukko, though the trees are young, and Hatagadaira area is a natural forest having wild huge trees. The colored leaves in autumn are worth seeing.
