Ryuzu Waterfall, Nikko

(360+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall
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.

  • There is a tea house you can visit that faces the waterfall so you can enjoy the sights and sounds. There's also stairs that lets you walk along the waterfall that leads to hiking trails connecting Lake Chuzenji and Lake Yumoto. Perfect for people who like walking trails.
  • Beautiful falls. Loved the downward view into the lake. Would love to come back again when the sakura are in blossom or in autumn.
  • Start of the walking trail around Senjougahara marsh. There is a restaurant overlooking the waterfall which serves delicious soba with mountain vegetables.
  • I came here with my girlfriend & sister on october 23, 2015 It such a right time to see color change in Nikko. People here are nice and welcome.
  • 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.
