The Asaka Canal Hayama Waterfall is a waterfall built in commemoration of the opening of the Asaka Canal by volunteers from the Kaisei Association in 1882. It is a stone monument commemorating the construction works of the Asaka Canal, built at a corner of Hayama Park, which was the last point of the irrigation works of the Asaka Canal. It was said that Iwakura Tomomi, who was the Right Minister at the time, was angry seeing the waterfall, saying that it did not make sense that an agricultural facility was used for aesthetic purposes, but he had misunderstood as it was actually meant to serve as an energy source for the silk industry.
