Getting to Minoh Falls requires a short 3 kilometer hike through a valley alongside the Minoh River. It’s not particularly long, nor is it especially difficult. The first half of the trail has a few temples worth visiting, which will help break up the walk. The trail is paved, and in terms of terrain, is gently undulating; the second half of the trail is slightly steeper but should not be very taxing. It takes most people about 45 minutes to walk there. It helps if you wear comfortable shoes. Don’t go in heels!
Minoh Falls is particularly beloved by locals and tourists alike as a fall foliage viewing spot, and sees a decent amount of foot traffic during autumn. At this time of the year, there’ll be temporary stalls along the trail selling the local speciality - deep-fried maple leaf tempura. This sweet, sesame-flavoured snack might sound odd, but it’s quite nice, and sugary enough to keep you going till the end of the hike.
