Yudaki Falls are located in Oku-Nikko and rank as one of Japan's three great waterfalls. Visitors can enjoy the breathtaking sight of the 70-meter-high cascade.
Yudaki Falls are located on the south edge of Yunoko Lake at the foot of Mount Nikko-Shirane, one of the 100 most famous mountains in Japan. These great falls are 70 meters high, 25 meters wide and 110 meters long. They empty into the river that runs through the Senjogahara marshland, one of the largest in Japan, then into Ryuzu Falls, Lake Chuzenji and finally, Kegon Falls. Yudaki, Ryuzu, and Kegon Falls are known as the three great waterfalls of the Oku-Nikko area. A walkway placed alongside the falls allows visitors to observe them from the lip, basin and side. In particular, the observatory platform near the basin lets you see the powerful cascade from up close. Visitors can also enjoy the scenery of the surrounding area, known for its azaleas and rhododendron. There is a hiking course from the observatory platform to the Senjogahara Plateau Nature Trail. The falls are about a 60-minute bus ride from the Tobu Railway Nikko Station on a bus bound for Yumoto Hot Spring, then a five-minute walk from Yutaki-iriguchi bus stop.
