  • I went to extent the water is cloudy, Kegon Falls. It might be a better feeling if it is fine. Be healed.

  • Iroha-Zaka slope up to the waterfall. Safe transport out to excess, but I go by car. Best is a lot because it may not be honest and beautiful and would rather go to the spring of water of Lake Chuzenji

  • Gondola to the observation area is well worth it. Very fun and charming
  • Great view nice weather! Worth the trip . Good for taking pictures.
  • Not much to say other than wonderful views in an easy location to access. What more could you want?
  • Great view. Need to pay extra to take elevator down to see from bottom. But overall good. Has great view of Nantai San mountain. You can hike that mountain too btw in 3+2.5hrs btw. Kengo falls area has restaurant and shops too. Overall good hangout.

Where to stay in Nikko

Rich in history, culture, and nature, you'll be pleased to find that Nikko also boasts a rich variety of accommodations. Competition may be pretty fierce at peak times, but make your reservation early and you'll be able to find somewhere to sleep that suits your style. Luxury hotels and boutiques with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) never stray too far from the river, while hostels and guesthouses tend to be tucked away on side streets, and up in the north of town. Mid-range and standard hotels lie close to the main train stations and by the main plazas.
