In 1909, a young village headman, Rikuma Onoda, 28 years old at that time, opened "Kotone-no-taki Falls" for many people who sought cool place in summer. He developed a new road to the falls by building a bridge and so on. This is a place where people can feel mind refreshing by hearing the musical melody like Koto (a long Japanese zither) created by falling water through rocks and can fully enjoy the beaty of nature around the falls.
