This is the view of Kesen Otaki from below. Although it is not a waterfall with a large head, so it is not so powerful, but the appearance that the waterfall is wide and the clear water flows smoothly is glossy and beautiful. Negative ions overflow from the waterfall, and the trees around it create shade, so you can feel comfortable even in summer and feel cool. It is also a good place to relax while enjoying the view of the waterfall with its comfortable tranquility.
