It's one of the great spots you have to see if you're taking hiking trail from Yumoto onsen to Kegon falls (or vice versa). This isn't your typical waterfall, because water don't really drop from any significant height, but it's a long cascaded stream of water and rocks and it's that lengts that makes it pretty impressive. Japanese thinks it... More

Eat at a quaint Japanese restaurant while you enjoy the Ryuzu waterfall. You can walk up the side of the waterfall on some large gradual steps. Depends on how long you like to stare at a waterfall but we managed to kill about two hours. We ate at the restaurant and the owner gave us some free food. Recommended.

It was interesting to visit Ryuzu waterfall, together Yutaki waterfall and the tour of the lake Yunoko. Take bus 2A and a day trip pass at the train station (information office) that allow you stop on the way and is cheaper than individual tickets. Yutaki is more impressive. Count 3 hours.

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...
