Kegon Waterfall is a short walk from Chuzenji Lake. This 97m waterfall best seen during autumn or summer but still look spectacular when I visited it during spring. The view was very nice and there is still snow around the area. There is a free platform provided but I recommend that you take the elevator to the another platform which give better view of the waterfall.

Certainly worth the visit and it offers a spectacular waterfall for your viewing. Try and go early to beat the crowds, but you won't be disappointed.

Take bus from JR Nikko station for the great views along the way to the waterfall. Bus stops right in front, an easy walk. Other beautiful sights and temples on this lakeside road too.

We took the local bus up the mountain to see the falls at the end of March, and there was still snow on the ground. It was a beautiful drive and the falls are nice. Since we are from California we are use to falls in Yosemite, so no as impressive as those of course. The town is nice and has a different feel. I would recommend the trip to see it.

Nice waterfall view with easy access. Bring a jacket, the tunnel is chilly. Reminded us a damn tour.
