Another gem of Japan, the Kegoon falls is ranked as one of the country’s best waterfalls. Located at the Lake Chuzenji, these falls are a result of rerouted lava that forms the Daiya River. Cascading from a height of 318 feet, the Kegon Falls, are encircled by twelve more tiny waterfalls that squirt from the cracks of adjoining mountains.

People from all over Japan, come to admire these falls, especially in the months of fall, thus even causing traffic jams on routes to the falls.

  • Came during winter when the trees were mostly wilted. Still spectacular though. Can imagine it must have been so much more beautiful a few weeks ago when the autumn leaves were in full splendor! One of the perks of visiting during the off-peak season is that we could get nice, uncrowded, up-close pictures. Highly recommend to pay to take the elevator down to the base of the falls as the view there is totally worth it.

  • Must visited place in Nikko!! The waterfall is great! Fresh air, nice view, easy access, orange tree (autumn). Its perfect!

  • Huge waterfall with a deep pool underneath it. The rock formation next to it is also very special. Definitely worth seeing if you are in Nikko

  • You will have very good feeling there. Every season is different experience! Spring and autumn are wonderful!

  • I suggest early arrival to beat it her day tripper s to limited parking space. You can take an elevator down to get a better view of the waterfall. 500 yen. Well worth the money.
