The Nachi Waterfall and Nachi Primeval Forest

The Nachi Water Fall is 133 meters high, 13 meters wide, and has a water flow of one ton per second. This is actually the highest waterfall in Japan and the object of the worship in the Kumano Nachi Grand Shrine.

 

Nachi Fire Festival, aka the fan festival, which takes place here on the 14th of July every year, is considered as one of the three biggest fire festivals in Japan. Also, the Nachi Virgin Forest, with an area of 30 ha, remains the same from ancient times with the efforts of Nachi Grand Shrine as well as local people.
