Yutaki Waterfall, Nikko

4.6
#4 of 23 in Nature in Nikko
Waterfall Nature / Park
Draining Lake Yuno by Yumoto Onsen, Yutaki Waterfall makes an impressive fan-shaped cascade, 70 m (229 ft) high and 110 m (360 ft) wide. A secure observation deck at the foot of the falls gives you a chance to feel the force of nature and get close to the roaring sound of tumbling water, with the sulfur-rich spray supposedly beneficial for your skin. You can also view the falls from the top. Take the 4.7 km (3 mi) hike from Senjogahara, which leads you past many streams, fallen trees, and meadows, or drive and park nearby. By using our Nikko itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to Yutaki Waterfall and other attractions in Nikko.

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.
