A place for purification frequented by devotees since over a thousand years ago
The Hirahara Waterfall is long known for its purifying properties and believed to have been discovered some 1,100 years ago by Ennin, or Jikaku-Daishi, a famous Buddhist priest. He stumbled upon the waterfall and decided to enshrine the Buddha of Medicine and Healing, making it a place of healing and purification.
