Ryuzu Waterfall, Nikko

#3 of 23 in Nature in Nikko
Waterfall Water Body
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.

  • Beautiful falls just up the road from chuzenji. We walked down from the higher trail entrance. The view, the smell, and the sound of the falls was all amazing.
  • 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.

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.
