Senjonotaki is located at Shintani, one of the upstream tributaries of Sawaradani. On your way up to the goal, Senjounotaki, you can enjoy 6 more falls. Hiking along the creek, sub-alpine trees such as spruces and hemlocks can be seen. And waterfalls and rocks around are covered with mosses.


Senjonotaki 50m ( 164 feet )

Senjonotaki is made of tabular joints. The first drop falls 30m down onto a large rock, and then turns into a widely-spread cascade.


Joints have various shapes depending on formation process such as cooling of hot lava, and deformation such as erosion and weathering. Senjonotaki features flat “tabular joints”, quite different from the columnar joint of Gandete Park.
