Observe a 97 meter waterfall up close and in person

Nikko is only about two hours away from Tokyo by train, but the contrast couldn’t be me stark. Tokyo is crowded with buildings, but Nikko is abundant with nature. There is also a sacred atmosphere in Nikko as it is home to many temples and shrines, including the well known Nikko Toshogu shrine.

Previously on this website, “A lake in Nikko, lake Chuzenji” was introduced in an article titled, “A large lake loved by European ambassadors directly in front of the temple.” Interested readers please click on the following link. https://www.tripsfromtokyo.org/news/a-large-lake-loved-by-european-ambassadors-directly-in-front-of-the-temple Lake Chuzenji is about 1200 meters above sea level. The lake flows into a river which in turn flows into Kegon Falls. Kegon Falls is about 97 meters tall. A waterfall that high and water falling from that height is a very impressive sight. In addition, the views of Kegon Falls differ with the season. During the current winter season, snow is prevalent in the daytime hours, therefore there is a lot of snow piled up around the waterfall. Also, if you’re lucky you may even get a chance to see the waterfall freeze over. In the Spring, warmer weather brings pink azaleas blossoms and overall pleasant atmosphere around Kegon Falls.

How did you feel when you read the previous section? Do you not want to go and see Kegon Falls? If you participate in the tour that we are offering you will have the opportunity to visit the observatory of the waterfall and see the massive amounts of water up close. We recommend this spot for anyone who loves nature. The sound of the falling water will reverberate throughout your body.
