The Maruonotaki Waterfall is an impressive waterfall that lies along the national highway between Kirishima-jingu Shrine and Maruo Onsen. The hot water from the Eino and Iodani hot springs that lie upstream mixes together, creating a rare warm waterfall. In autumn the surroundings are dyed by the coloring leaves, and when winter comes around the rising steam creates a magical atmosphere. The scenery of the area changes with each of the seasons, and tourists come to experience the beauty of the nature throughout the whole year. Additionally, a shower of the splashes and negative ions from the water is said to relieve daily fatigue and soothe both mind and body. The mysterious sight of lights dancing over water created by the nighttime illuminations is also not one to miss.
