This two-level waterfall is 32 metres high, falling over a cliff of volcanic rock. Since ancient times the waterfall has been dedicated to the Buddhist deity Acala. It is believed to be a sacred waterfall, having the power to change a bad-luck year into a good-luck one for men who are 42 years old and women who are 33 years old. The waterfall has an opening ceremony on 7 July each year.

安山岩の岩壁の上、約32mから落下する二段滝。古来より不動明王をまつり、行場として信仰を集めています。滝開きは7月7日で、数え年42歳の男性と33歳の女性を対象に、「厄歳」をめでたく躍進する意味の「躍歳」にかえる聖滝とされています。
