Meaning "roar" in Japanese, Todoroki Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in Japan. The crystal-clear Kaifu river crashes 58 meters over a cliff, creating the largest waterfall in Shikoku. Besides Todorki Falls itself, there are 98 other waterfalls to discover in the area. Stroll five minutes away from the falls through the beautiful forest, and you will come across the Todoroki Shrine.
The Todoroki Shrine is home to Todoroki Shrine Grand Autumn Festival, which has been taking place for over 400 years. This festival features a ceremony where men carry mikoshi, or portable shrines, down a set of stone stairs into the waterfall. Take in this solemn ceremony while absorbing the healing energy of the trees and nature.
