Stop at Kegon Falls, the most famous of Nikko’s 48 waterfalls. Water from Lake Chuzenji falls 97 meters straight down to the rocks below creating a dynamic and artistic work of nature. A special lift takes visitors to the basin where the force and roar of the water can be witnessed close up.

Visit Lake Chuzenji to enjoy the seasonal charms of the lake, particularly when the cherry blossoms or azaleas are in bloom. Walking trails surround the water’s edge and there is an excursion boat available on the lake.
