Todoroki Falls is located near the point where Shioda River and Iwayagauchi River converge upstream in Ureshino River, around 1 km from Ureshino Hot Spring town in the direction of Nagasaki. It is 11 meters high and split into 3 stages. The waterfall basin is around 2500 m2. The waterfall's name, Todoroki Falls, or "boom falls" comes from the fact that the falling water makes a booming sound like that of thunder. The surrounding area has been made into a park and it is perfect for taking a walk after soaking in a hot spring. Takimi Bridge downstream from the waterfall is the ideal spot for viewing the falls. In springtime, sakura cherry blossoms completely cover the park in a blanket of pink for the viewing pleasure of visitors.
