Nachi Waterfall and the Star-Filled Sky(Nachi-no-Taki-to Hoshizora)


Stars hang brightly above Nachi Waterfall.

If you look up at Nachi Waterfall after the sun goes down and the waterfall is thrown into darkness, you can see numerous stars shining brightly in the sky. This scenery, combining the waterfall and stars in the night sky, is one of the most spectacular views you can experience in Kumano.
