Ogawa Falls in Minamiosumi heals you with the soothing sounds of mountain streams, making you one with nature.
At the end of a narrow road along the river, you will see a parking lot.
Another 1200 meters down the trail, a mystical scene will suddenly appear before you.
A 60 meter-wide cascade runs into a basin shining a delicate emerald green, a stark contrast with the rough rock face above.
Swimming in the basin is prohibited, but the feel of cool valley air is well worth the experience.
