Otodome Falls

Otodome Falls is a famous waterfall in Shizuoka Prefecture. It is selected as one of "Japan's Top 100 Waterfalls", along with Shiraito Falls (refer to #502) nearby.

The name "otodome" literally means "stopping its sound". It derived from a legend in which some samurai once prayed for a god to stop the sound in order that they would have an important conversation and the wish was fulfilled.
