To reach the waterfall, you should walk up a mountain path extending from Minoo Station of the Hankyu railway. The mountain path is also called takimichi (waterfall path), and winds up the mountain along a river running from the waterfall; the distance between the station and the waterfall is about 2.8 km (about 50 minutes on foot). The river width is both narrow and wide, and so you can enjoy various scenes.
