Fukuoka Power Spot: Sugao Waterfall (菅生の滝)

Posted by

Many Japanese believe there are power spots located around Japan that emit spiritual energy that can help heal the mind, soul, and body. One such spot is said to be located at Sugao Waterfall in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka, Japan. After a short trek up the mountain and passing a few moss covered bridges you will eventually come to a shrine that is said house gods and spirits that protect the young children and babies who have passed on from this life. About ten minutes later you arrive to the power spot known as Sugao Waterfall. If you dare to take a short climb to the second level of the 30m waterfall you can feel the energy and cleansing effect of the negative ions generated by the waterfall. Is it truly a power spot as the Japanese claim? I don’t know. But what I do know is the feeling standing in front of the Sugao Waterfall was one of freshness and renewal.
