Fukuroda Falls (袋田の滝, Fukuroda-no-taki) is a waterfall located in the town of Daigo, Ibaraki Prefecture Japan. It is a nationally designated Place of Scenic Beauty.and is one of "Japan’s Top 100 Waterfalls", per a listing published by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment in 1990. The falls are ranked as the third most beautiful waterfall in Japan, coming after Kegon Falls (華厳滝, Kegon-no-taki) and Nachi Falls (那智滝, Nachi-no-taki).
The falls are located within the borders of the Okukuji Prefectural Nature Park. The falls are on the Taki River (滝川, Taki-gawa), which has its source spring just above the falls. The river ultimately joins the Kuji River, one of the major rivers in the northern Kantō region. The falls have a width of 73 metres (240 ft) and are 120 metres (390 ft) at their highest point, with four main tiers. Geologically, the falls are located on a cliff created by a volcanic ejecta some 15 million years ago. During winter the falls may freeze.
The closest train station is Fukuroda Station on the JR East Suigun Line located 3 kilometers away. By car, the falls can be reached from the Naka Interchange on the Jōban Expressway to Japan National Route 118 in the direction of Ōmiya.
