Panorama fall
 upper fall 50m(164 feet)  lower fall 40m(131 feet)

Two tributaries, Shintani and Syakunanzutani joined to become a creek Hyoedani, which starts to run downstream. Panorama fall is there where the fork devides. Rocks around the fall are stained whitish partly by the hot spring water. From this fall you pick your way up to Hyakkendaki through a moss-grown forest.

Hyakkendaki 60m(197 feet)

This tour requires the longest wading process of all the 13 Tours of Osakano Taki.
