Imose Waterfall is 30 minutes on foot from Onoura Station on the JR Sanyo Main Line. The lower waterfall, called Medaki, has a vertical drop of 50 m, and the upper, broader waterfall Odaki has a drop of 30 m. The dynamic waterfall is still a popular spot for cooling down in summer, not least because it is within easy traveling distance from urban areas. The footage records a family day out at the waterfall, and the rural scenery on the way home. The family is shown walking home via Kyoguchimon-dori, suggesting that they had taken the Sanyo Line and tram.
