Akame 48 Falls is a popular excursion from Nara in west-central Honshu Japan. As the name suggests there are numerous small waterfalls and cascades, all located in a forested canyon. A trail leads upstream passing each of the falls. Some of these falls are very pretty. The walk is especially nice in autumn due to the changing colors of the leaves. On a hot summer day you can swim in the pools beneath the various falls, but watch out for biting trout!
