The Emerald Waterfall Basin Of A Most Beautiful Niyodo River

A waterfall basin 'Niko-buchi' belongs to the branch of Niyodo River whose water quality is the most beautiful in Japan. The very clear water like emerald is called Niyodo Blue, and here is a popular place to see it. Though the path is severe, you can meet the mysterious scenery!◎You can find a signboard on the way to 'Green Park Hodono'. To the waterfall basin, you need to hold the chain for about 4 meters. The most beautiful time is when the sun stays right above.
