See the Incredible Nunobiki Falls


Just a short walk from Kobe train station, along a trail that winds behind the buildings, you’ll come across Nunobiki Falls. Nunobiki is comprised of four separate falls: Ontaki, Mentaki, Tsutsumigadaki, and Meotodaki.

Having attracted local poets, writers, painters, and philosophers throughout Japanese history, it’s not difficult to be inspired by the fairy-tale torrents of the falls, and see how this space of tranquillity and natural beauty has such a significance in Japanese culture. In particular, in the “Tales of Ise,” a minor official takes a trip to the falls and holds a poetry contest.
