Among some 50 beautiful waterfalls in Nikko, this waterfall is the most famous and considered one of top three waterfalls in Japan. The 97m-high waterfall is the only outlet flowing out of Lake Chuzenji and is flanked by a dozen or so of small streams. There is a free observation deck near the car park to get a glimpse, or you can spend the extra yen for an elevator ride down to the viewing deck in front of the waterfall base.

The view is stunning in lush green of early summer or vibrant colors of autumn foliage. Prepare something to cover as the area is very cool even in the height of summer. The nearby cable car takes you to the top of a hill where there is a bird's eye view of the lake, the waterfall and some downstream cascades.

Loved this place. Really worth going. The 97m fall is impressive and makes a great photo shoot opportunity. Very easy to get to from the bus station and the lift is also very convenient. I’d be back!

A lovely area of Nikko. I've visited in summer and winter and it's beautiful all year round due to how the seasons change what you can see. Dragonflies dance around during warmer/hotter weather which are great for photos and if you're lucky you'll see a family if monkey's nearby too. There are many cafe's, restaurants, hotel's and souvenir shops too, it's well worth checking out but one day might not feel long enough despite it being a smallish area.

Due to Japan’s popularity, particularly in autumn, pricing and availability are highly subject to change. Pleas to inquire about your ideal dates.

This is a must visit in Nikko. One of the most beautiful waterfalls. You can take a elevator to reach the bottom of the fall. The road up the falls is very scenic too.

Stunning view. But the drive to get there was even better! Would recommend to eat the grilled fish and vegetable soup close to the bill counter. Excellent!
