  • 沒有特色的瀑布,只是容易接近。很方便,觀景台很容易到達,適合小孩子或是老人家。對青年人來說,不是很有吸引力。 
  • As you reach to set your eyes on these big falls there are viewing platform made that are quite far away . End result there are waterfalls to gaze but satiate yourself with distant view which still is...  more »

  • The best of the waterfalls in this area and worth paying to get down to the best vantage point. The falls look stunning in winter when everything is covered in snow and ice.
  • A must see in Nikko! You will have to pay a fee if you want to take the elevator to the bottom to get the best view of the falls but it is definitely worth it!
  • Superb waterfall! I have visited this twice (2015 Dec and 2016 Aug). If you go to Nikko you must not miss this. Do check the closing timing before you plan because there is an 100meter elevator (550 yen) which takes you to the viewing point for this waterfall.
  • Beautiful place, you can see it from Akchidara Ropeway too, It's near to Bus stop of Lake chuzenji ko,
  • Visit the paid observatory. It is amazing. great place.
