These thrilling falls run down a steep cliff some 97 meters high. Each season offers stunning views of the great outdoors.
Kegon Falls is surrounded by the magnificent scenery of the Oku-nikko area. Water from Lake Chuzenji, created by the volcanic eruption of Mt. Nantai about 20,000 years ago, splashes down a large cliff. It is 97 meters high and 7 meters wide, and its basin is about 4.5 meters deep. In the building located at the foot of Mt. Nantai is an elevator that enables you to view the waterfall as it dashes down, and hear the thunder of the waterfall 100 meters below. In this area, one can enjoy beautiful scenery that changes by the season: deep green in early summer, red and yellow leaves in autumn, and small frozen falls that turn to blue ice in winter. You will find the columnar joints, which emerged when the lava was cooling down, where you can view the beautiful creations of Mother Nature. From Tokyo, take a Limited Express Spacia of the Tobu Line or the JR Utsunomiya or Nikko Line. It is about 40 minutes by a Tobu bus from the Nikko station of the Tobu Line or the JR Lines and a 5-minute walk from the Chuzenji bus stop.
