MAPCODE for car park : 476 837 583

Materiya no Taki Waterfall is surrounded by deep forest, and long ago people called the sight of the sun hitting the waterfall "where the sun falls really beautifully." Travelers in the old days were impressed by the beauty of the waterfall when they saw the sunlight shining on it while walking on a dim mountain road. The waterfall is located deep in the jungle, so to visit the waterfall you will need to rent a car. The trail is It's quite overgrown, so it feels dim even in the daytime. The scenery around the waterfall is also very quiet, and it is a very fantastic place.

It takes about 2 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the waterfall.

Although the MAPCODE is for the parking lot near the waterfall, it is recommended to use Google Map together with the car navigation system since it is in the jungle and the car navigation system may guide you on a very detour.

2D1N Routes

If you have 2 days and 1 night, we invite you to explore the suburbs of Fukuoka. You have three main destinations suggested like Kitakyushu/Shionoseki, Takeo/Ureshino and very famous Onsen towns such as Yufuin/Beppu which are worth checking out. It is recommended for travelers who do not dispose of much time but who would not only want to visit Fukuoka City but also other places. However, 2 Days and 1 Night is very limited and we highly recommend to at least choose route with 3 days and 2 nights, or longer if you can. Additionally, it is risky to take a flight or bullet train after returning your car as external environment concerns can happen and can't be predicted. This is why we would advise to stay one night at Fukuoka.
