Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kyushu / Kagoshima Prefecture / Kumage-gun / Yakushima-cho / Sempiro Falls
Feel the force of nature at Sempiro Falls, a waterfall cascading out of a cut in the mountains amidst greenery from some 20 m (60 ft). Steep smooth rock surface on both sides add to the experience, and you can view villages and fields from this vantage point. Follow a concrete path to a picnic table alongside the river where you can rest. You'll also find a store nearby for refreshments and souvenirs. Work out when and for how long to visit Sempiro Falls and other Yakushima-cho attractions using our handy Yakushima-cho trip planner.

An alright waterfall. Wish you could get a bit closer, but still quite a massive waterfall from far. A short walk from the parking lot.
Lovely place, please go through the cafe route not the other (dead end one)
