Nanataki-Yatsubo is a cascade at a hidden spot in Higashiyoshino Village.
The name means “seven falls and eight basins” in Japanese because it is a seven-tiered waterfall. Although it should be “seven falls and seven basins,” people changed the latter “seven” to “eight” after the famous Japanese proverb: Fall seven times stand up eight.
Its water was selected as one of the best spring waters in Japan by the Ministry of Environment in 1998.
