Nature's Sacred Mysteries! A Multi-Level Waterfall

The name of this magical waterfall is derived from the seven falls it comprises ("nana" meaning seven, "taki" meaning waterfall). The waterfall and the surrounding area are designated as a place of scenic beauty and a natural monument. The conglomerate stone under the waterfall is called "Kodakara-ishi" and is said to help people have children. There is also an opening (a hollow in the rock) of some 7 meters wide within which you can sense the mysteries of nature. Every year on the last Sunday of July, the townspeople holds the Atera-no-Nanataki Festival, with simple but curious attractions to celebrate both the place and the summer season.
