Ryuzu Waterfall, Nikko

4.1
#4 of 51 in Parks in Nikko
See the rushing waters of Ryuzu Waterfall, an impressive natural feature in the center of an attractive woodland. The twin falls have been said to possess an almost mystical quality, with their name literally translated as "Dragon Head Waterfall." The leafy trees that flank the cascades shelter them, hiding them away and adding to the serenity of the scene. Admire the twin falls from the small observation deck, located behind a visitor center housing a souvenir shop and food stall.

  • Is there a standard tree of the autumn allotment of sunlight on the right side of the waterfall of the dragon head? It is inconvenient for a moment because the place is narrow to see from the front in the shop to see. The parking lot is small, but the time of autumn leaves is very beautiful.

  • Stop at the waterfall and there's a scenic trail leading to the waterfall below, making it easy for people to enjoy along the way. There is also a parking lot near the waterfall, as well as a teahouse, a letter shop and a hand washing room. There is a place in front of the waterfall where people can see the waterfall head-on. The waterfall is especially beautiful under the trust.
