Known as the "Niagara of Japan," Fukiware Falls or Fukiware no Taki, is in Numata City, Gunma Prefecture. The lovely Katashina River turns into an impressive series of falls that drop from 7-meters high and span 30-meters wide. The beautiful falls surrounded by the lush forest on either side make for a popular tourist spot in any season. Especially exceptional are the colors of autumn as the river is colored by the reflections of colorful autumn trees.

Kawaba Denen Plaza is a multi-award winning roadside station in Kawaba Village, Gunma. Great choice of food for eat in or take out. Large range of souvenirs, a farmer's market and even blueberry picking and pottery classes. And they have a great play area for kids too.
