Reviewed April 16, 2014

While Japan is fab in APril due to Sakura - this place may be better looking in Autumn. However, if you're visiting the temples definately worth a stop.

“Worth the stop”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

I went during the end of winter (March)and it was half frozen and it is so incredible to see a frozen waterfall.

However I did not go to the other smaller waterfalls as it was very cold and to wait for the next bus at an uninsulated bus stand seems like a bad idea if u are traveling with older people.

“Kegon Falls”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Nice to walk around this area, down steps to view falls and take pics. The day we were there was very crowded with buses of school children but it was still nice. Saw monkeys in November!!

“If you're visiting Nikko, this is a must see!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I visited Kegon Falls in January and thought it was stunning. I went later on in the day maybe around 3pm and it was very quiet. There were only about 10 people admiring the falls.
The bus ride up is one of the nicest journeys I've ever been on. So many photo ops and something you'll remember for the rest of your life or at least I know I will :)

“Stunning”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

The waterfall was beautiful with parts frozen over. The kids loved the novelty of travelling down in the elevator to see it from lower down. The serenity made me pause to reflect on life's path and cycles...
