The 48 Waterfalls of Takihata
From the Kawachinagano Station of the Nankai Electric Railway or Kintetsu Railway, take the bus bound for Takihata Dam to its last stop. A 15-minute walk from the bus stop. The 48 Waterfalls of Takihata are located in the mountains Kawachinagano, close to the borders of Wakayama Prefecture, and mark the beginning of the climbing trails for Mt. Iwaki and Mt. Makio. Spring water from the Kii Mountains tumbles down many superbly scenic waterfalls including Koutaki, Ootaki, Gokodaki, Gongendaki, Chigodaki and Arataki. A five-minute walk from the camp site located beyond the Kotakiji Temple takes visitors to Kotaki, falling about nine meters; hiking to Arataki takes another 15 minutes, to Gokodaki a further 30 minutes and to Ootaki another 40. It is an easy and popular hiking course. Many visitors enjoy outdoor activities along the river as well. Takihata dam and the 48 Waterfalls of Takihata have beautiful green scenery, and this area has been designated as one of the "Top One Hundred Greenery Scenes of Osaka."
