Kanpire Falls

Kanpire Falls

Area

Located upriver on the Urauchi River. Downriver some 250 meters is the Mariyudo Waterfalls. Kampire means “a place where the gods sit;” the name is related to the Iriomote island creation myth. The river bottom is sand bedrock for about 200 meters. Kampire is a small waterfall with an easy drop through many stages. The water flows fast here and throws up a mist of white spray. At last the river reaches Mariyudo Falls and flows into the sediment pool.
