Walk across a suspension bridge and let the mists flow over you

Sekinoo Falls is one of Miyazaki's largest and most powerful waterfalls. Stand in the middle of the swaying bridge and watch these torrential falls crash onto volcanic rocks below. Be quick with your photos, though, or your camera will get wet.

Quick Facts

The walk across the suspension bridge in front of the falls is breathtaking

Neighboring Mochio Park is a fine place to picnic during cherry blossom season

How to Get There

Sekinoo Falls is accessible by car or taxi.

From Miyazaki, get onto the Miyazaki Expressway and head toward Kumamoto. Take the Miyakonojo exit onto Route 10. After about 10 minutes, turn right onto Route 108. From there, you can easily follow the signs to the falls.

Prepare to get wet

You can park for free at the top of the falls and then walk down the steps to the bridge.

Make sure you stop and take a photo from up top. It's especially gorgeous in cloudy weather.

Enjoy other areas and have a picnic

Just around the corner from the main carpark is a park where you can walk around and enjoy lunch or a picnic.

Ask before heading down

If you're the adventurous type, you might want to head down onto the rocks below the bridge to get a shot of the falls. Although you will often see photographers down there, be sure to ask before going down.

Sekinoo Falls is a great day trip out from Miyazaki City . You can easily combine it with a walk around Mochio Park , and take in the Mochio Park cherry blossoms from mid-March to April.

The falls are also about halfway between Miyazaki and Kagoshima , so if you're heading to one from the other, it's a great stopping point.
