The third of Japan’s best waterfalls, the Ryuzu Waterfall will leave you awestruck, irrespective of the time of the year you visit it!
Literally meaning “Dragon's Head Waterfall”, the Ryuzu waterfalls is essentially a twin waterfall, resembling a dragon’s head. Making its way into Nikko’s popular lakes of the mesmerizing Lake Chuzenji and the Lake Yunoko, this waterfall runs 210 meters with an upstream location to the Yugawa River.
Apart from the waterfall, running over the lava once erupted by Mt. Stream, the surroundings are especially noteworthy! Lush and vibrant foliage, that soothe the eyes instantly, is an experience at the Ryuzu waterfall. It will be underestimation to say that the sight is no less than being a part of an oriental painting of waterfalls!
The months of May and June witness the pleasing magenta Rhododendrons and wadanums bloom in all their glory, drawing a large number of visitors from all over. While the autumn months are another story altogether!
