- Kiyomizu-No-Taki Falls
- Ogi city, Saga prefecture
- Kiyomizu waterfall is situated upstream Kiyomizu River, which is a tributary running into Kasegawa River, and it is also known as Tamasudare Waterfall (meaning "Precious Stone Screen"). The 13-meter wide waterfall is magnificent as it hurtles down a 75-meter sheer drop, and its beauty is a sight to behold. The stone beside the waterfall is in memory of Kiyo Kuranaga, a samurai of Munenori Nabeshima, the 6th ruler of Hizen, who had come to the falls to pray for his master's recovery from a serious illness, but died from the cold while doing so. This stone was erected in 1787, and apparently it was from around that time that the custom of purification ceremonies at waterfalls began to spread.
