onako Falls: Gongen Falls (left, 75 meters) and Fudo Falls (85 meters)
Nagano Prefecture, Japan
|Total height||85 m|
|Average width||6 m|
The Yonako Falls, located in Suzaka, Nagano, Japan is a collective name of two waterfalls: the Fudo Falls (不動滝 Fudo no taki) and the Gongen Falls (権現滝 Gongen no taki). Both falls combine to make the Yonako River, which is one of the tributaries of the Chikuma River, the upper stream of Japan's longest river, the Shinano River, which flows into the Sea of Japan at Niigata City.
The view of the falls, 900 meters away from the slag ground of the former Yonako Sulfur Mines (Japanese: 米子硫黄鉱山), which has been converted to a park, is said to be excellent, especially during the autumn leaves season.
