The same suggests dragon fall? Was the best for us as most sites doesn't have pram access and many stairs. This one was behind some omiyage shops n up one flight of stairs. We did end up venturing up another 5 min worth of steps. Very nice soothing waterfall. I would describe it as a very fast moving river ending... More

For anyone who has seen large, beautiful waterfalls this will seem pretty lackluster. I would only recommend it as a starting point for hiking the Senjyogahara Trail, which is a fun 2-hr hike to Yuomoto Onsen. Once at Yuomoto definitely go to any one of several hotels that offer an onsen, which is basically a very hot swimming pool whose... More

I stopped there on the way from Yunoko Lake area to Chuzemji lake. It is just a small fall not as stunning as Kegon fall. But a nice stop to have lunch by the fall or in the restaurant where while eating Udon you can watch the bottom of the fall.

We hiked from Yuno lake down to Ryuzu Waterfall in the fall. A great hike through Oku-Nikko's high lands. The falls are a nice place to stop and have lunch. One of the many stunning waterfalls and natural features of the region.

We got off a small bus and walked down the promenade. A pure river flows by our right side. It leads us to the waterfall. You can find a cafe and from the inside of it, you can enjoy good view of it.

I have visited Nikko more than 20 times and each visit has been fascinating in any season. Ryuzu Waterfall is one of my favorite waterfalls in Nikko. The view with lush green leaves surrounding the waterfall in summer is totally refreshing, with red and yellow leaves in fall is breathtaking and with the snow background in winter is full of...

before i went there i think ryuzu would be a big waterfall. then i found it very small. but it still nice because of its autumn color. My bad, i went there on 6 pm so it's already dark.

This is one of the token sight seeing spots in the Nikko area. Early October is probably too early for Autumn leaves (koyo), but there was still some colouring occurring. The falls are beautiful, I was here on a week day, and there was only a small crowd on the balcony, which wasn't too bad. There is a souvenir shop... More

If you're in the Lake Chuzenjiko area this is a nice waterfall for a brief stop. Actually, it is a series of cascades and waterfulls about 500 meters long. The fall colors were out when we visited and it was quite beautiful--lots of people taking pictures.

If you have limited time this would be the falls to visit. The walk to top is not that difficult and the view down is spectacular. The autumn colours made it even more beautiful
