Fudo waterfall in Ofunato city consists of two waterfalls, Odaki on the right and Medaki on the left.

Fudoson is enshrined in the shrine between the two waterfalls, so the name of this waterfall was named after that.

By the way, Fudoson is a god widely believed in Japanese Buddhism.

Odaki that flows down from a height of 15 meters is called ‘Shiraito Falls’ because of its mysterious quietness. so It’s a famous scenic spot in Ofunato.
