On March 26. 1993 Japan issued this Ibaraki Prefecture stamp (Scott #Z131) depicting Fukuroda Falls. Stamp was issued in both sheet and booklet format, as shown below. Fukuroda Falls has been called one of the three most picturesque waterfalls in the country.

From the japanvistor.com website, "The Fukuroda Falls rise to a height of 121 meters and are 73 meters wide. The water from the Taki River, which has its source just above the falls, descends in four tiers of cascades, giving the name 'yo-dono-taki' (four times falls)."

Shasui-no-taki waterfall on the Tanzawa River at Yamakita is shown on this Kanagawa Prefecture stamp (Sc. #Z125) of 1992. Stamp was issued in sheets and booklets (one or two straight edges).

From Wikipedia, "The Shasui Falls drops in three separate plunges with a total height of 90 meters...The famed monk Mongaku is said to have spent 100 days in meditation and austerities at this waterfall."

Latvia's 2001 Euopa stamp (Sc. #528) depicts the Venta waterfall near Kuldiga. This stamp was issued in a miniature sheet of 10, in a horizontal format of 2 rows of 5 stamps. The second row is upside down, so there are 5 vertical tete beech pairs per sheet.

From the latvia.travel website, "the width of the waterfall is around 100 - 110 meters, while the height is 1.8 - 2 meters...Each autumn and spring one can see an exciting phenomenon here, as the fish try to clear the rapids by jumping over it." This site is sometimes referred to as the "flying fish of Kuldiga."
