Monzen Otaki Falls

At about 60 tall, Monzen Otaki Falls is the largest of several waterfalls on the cliffs of the western shore of Oga Peninsula. It used to simply be called Otaki, meaning “the large waterfall”, but it is now prefaced by the place name so as not to be confused with the large waterfall near Hachibodai Observation Tower. Back when Fudo Myo’o, the god of fire, was enshrined in the waterfall basin, sailors would pray for safe journey at the waterfall.
