None None

Connect with nature with meditation under a waterfall


Experience traditional waterfall meditation at Kiyotaki Falls, located deep in the forests of Mt. Ontake. Ascetics of the native Ontake faith have trained and worshipped at Kiyotake Falls since ancient times in a connection of human spirituality with the natural world. The 30-meter-high waterfall freezes into a pillar of ice in winter, making for a majestic sight.

When to go: April through November




Follow the Path of Pilgrims on the Ancient Ontake Kodo Trail
