Ryuzu Waterfall, Nikko
(4.1/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • I'd arrived in the early morning, I went to the Kegon Falls from the parking lot (free) were already full. It is still popular even after the foliage at its peak. It's elementary school field trips since coming here. I was going to be like climbing stairs, we visited. I forget, but since ○ 10, ringtones in children has been, however, is not really was. Take a nice picture from the kiosk at the entrance. There are many types such as soup, very attractive. My son ate the morning lemon milk ice cream, but seems very good.

  • 其實這個景點很小,要看龍頭瀑布的話最佳觀賞地點是在某一間茶屋內,周圍也有很多茶屋,這一帶主要是飲食聚集區為主 
  • Beautiful autumn colours. Short walk from the road. Readily accessible. Lower side access to view the falls is from the balcony of the gift shop
