Tamadara WaterFall, Hakone, c. 1910.

“An example is here shown [Plate IV] of a group of cascades called Tamadare-no-taki, situated near Dogashima in the Hakone district, which may be taken as characteristic of different types of waterfalls introduced into landscape gardens. The large fall on the left of the picture pours over a rugged rock surface and is broken into numerous streamlets curving in different directions. Such cascades are termed by the Japanese ‘Thread falls’ or ‘Vermicelli falls’ because they suggest the tangled lines of floss silk or vermicelli.”
