DAIGO, Ibaraki Prefecture--There are few better places to view autumn in its full fiery glory than the magnificent Fukuroda Falls.
The falls are 120 meters high and have four levels, according to Daigo's tourism association.
Officially designated as one of the nation’s beauty spots, this is the best time to view the autumn leaves ... the yellows, oranges and reds of the maples, sawtooth oaks and others. The vibrant colors contrast beautifully with the streaking white color of the water tumbling down the cliff.
Many sightseers were perched on a viewing spot nearby, observing the wonderful scenery.
