We went in early dec and the twin waterfalls were frozen. despite that its still worth visiting. The winds are rather strong and place is very cold, minus 2 degree. You can take nice pictures.

The best time to head to Ginga & Ryusei falls is just after sunrise. The falls faces east ward and as the sun rises behind the hills, it lights up the waterfalls. Furthermore, everyone else is still sleeping or having breakfast in the hotels, so you have the entire place to yourself. If you are able to climb, there is... More

You can stop it for a while and take nice pictures, or go a bit walking with the stairs (if you are not afraid of moskitoes).

Able to see water falls down from the mountain top since it's summer time. We were told by the guide that in winter time there might be only a small stream running down, or even all turn to be ice. It's not consider a gigantic fall but worth to see.
