Highlights

Seven waterfalls made of lava flow. You will enjoy spectacular views of the different shapes of pillar-like rocks called "columnar joints". After walking along the trail with clear streams and beautiful varied landscapes, you will surely feel refreshed both in body and mind.

  • Start: Nanadaru Visitor Center

    "Kawazu Nanadaru Visitor Center" is located in Kawazu Nanadaru Tourist Center.

  • Deai-daru Falls

    The two streams join each other here and formed into a flow of a waterfall. You will be impressed with the crystal clear water of the stream. The lava flow of Noboriominami Volcano created beautiful columnar joints on both sides of the waterfalls.

  • Kani-daru Falls

    A small waterfall that flows quietly in a beautiful mountain stream. It is said that it was named "crab waterfalls" because the swelling of columnar joints cut by the water current beside the waterfalls looks like a crab's shell.

  • Shokei-daru Falls

    With a height of about 10 meters and a width of about 7 meters, the white flow of the waterfalls and the bronze statue of "Izu dancer and I" harmonize well in nature.

  • Hebi-daru Falls

    From the fact that the pattern of the neighboring rocks look like a snake scales, it was named Hebi-daru (Snake waterfalls).

  • Ebi-daru Falls

    It is named after the shape of the waterfalls flow that resembles the shrimp's tail. Unlike the other 6 waterfalls, which were from a lava flow from Noboriominami Volcano, Ebi-daru Falls were created from the strata of ancient submarine volcanoes. Therefore it is the only waterfalls where you can not see columnar joints.

  • Kama-daru Falls

    It is a powerful waterfall where the lava flowed from Noboriominami Volcano created. Rocks shaped like pillars can be seen in the lava. This is called "columnar joint" which became a columnar shape due to cold contraction of lava.

  • O-daru Falls

    O-daru Falls, the largest waterfalls in the downstream part of the Nanadaru Waterfalls, is 30 meters in height, 7 meters in width. You can see beautiful columnar joints on the cliffs. A hot spring springs out at the side of the waterfalls and is used as an open-air bath.
