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.
