Nunobiki Falls 布引の滝

The mountain range that frames Kobe on the Northern slope called Rokkō recently provided me with a welcome escape from the bustle of this modern city. One of the beauties of Japan is how pedestrian friendly it is, you seemingly are able to walk almost anywhere. However, one downside is directions can be a bit of a sticky wicket. The point being, I got lost but it was because I didn't think that one of Japan's most impressive waterfalls was a 20 minute walk into the mountains just behind a train station. Nunobiki Falls has four cascades and their beauty is referenced in Japanese literature as far back as the 10th century. The falls are currently swollen from all the heavy rains.
