Ryuzu Waterfall, Nikko

(4.2/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
See the rushing waters of Ryuzu Waterfall, an impressive natural feature in the center of an attractive woodland. The twin falls have been said to possess an almost mystical quality, with their name literally translated as "Dragon Head Waterfall." The leafy trees that flank the cascades shelter them, hiding them away and adding to the serenity of the scene. Admire the twin falls from the small observation deck, located behind a visitor center housing a souvenir shop and food stall. Our Nikko tourist route planner makes visiting Ryuzu Waterfall and other Nikko attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Is the muddy water flowing because of melting snow or summer or already very good? I think. In front of the restaurant! The season has opened and closed during winter because I thought.

  • Go Autumn with Red, Yellow & Green leaves. Who wouldn't love the autumn foliage here. Dont stop at the entrance just to see the fall. Do a breeze walk into the fall itself to see more.
  • Looks best in autumn and winter. It's worth visiting especially as it's close to the start of a trek through the beautiful Senjogahara.
  • Nice waterfall but to be honest I was expecting something bigger
  • Beautiful waterfall that is surrounded by beautiful autumn leaves.
  • Good sight seeing at autumn
