Known locally as Otaki-sama, Kanbora Falls is a relatively unknown waterfall even to those who have lived in Nishi-izu. Located in Arari, the waterfall is about a 30 minute walk from Jim's Guest House and has a very walkable ascent of about 143 meters with the steepest portion just before the falls. Unlike most waterfalls which are vertical, Otaki-sama takes a curve at the bottom making this a rather unique waterfall. The 67 meter high waterfall streams over a cliff formed of multiple molten lava layers. A red Shinto shrine is located just below the waterfall that is reached by walking across a hanging bridge. Seldom visited, this is a great spot for a hide-away picnic.
