Janokuchi Waterfall

Only 4km away from Yakushima Senvus Village, you can find Onoaida Onsen and the entrance to the Janokuchi Waterfall hiking course. 
「屋久島センバスビレッジ」から4 キロほどのところに、「尾之間温泉」と、「蛇ノ口滝ハイキングコース」の登山口があります。

The Janokuchi Waterfall hiking course takes you through a lush forest with subtropical plants and moss-covered rocks until the Janokuchi Waterfall, which falls from a 30-meter tall granite rock into a beautiful basin.
 「蛇ノ口滝ハイキングコース」は、生い茂る亜熱帯植物と苔むす岩の森を抜け、高さ30 メートルの花崗岩から美しい滝つぼに落ちる「蛇ノ口の滝」まで続きます。

The trail takes around 5 hours to go and back, and if you are lucky you might even see some monkeys and deer along the way.

Once back at the entrance, we can relax after a tiresome hike at Onoaida Onsen. ^^
