Places Around to Visit
Fukushima Airport, which straddles Tamagawa Village and Sukagawa City, was opened in 1993 and is named after the godfather of tokusatsu films, Eiji Tsuburaya, who was born in Sukagawa City. The adjacent Fukushima Airport Park has an outdoor activity area where you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing and barbecues.
This waterfall has been selected as one of the 100 best waterfalls in Japan and is also known as the Little Niagara. It has a drop of 6m and a width of 100m. When the volume of water is high, the water falls over the entire width of the 100m river, making for a spectacular sight.
