  • 言わずと知れた日光を代表する観光スポットの一つです。落差約100mを大量の水が一気に流れ落ちる様は、遠くから見ても見応えがあり、常に観光客が絶えず訪れるスポットの一つでもあります。 華厳の滝を鑑賞する展望設備は2か所あり、1か所は有料で専用のエレベーターで入口より約100m下の『観瀑台』まで降ります。もう一つは入口付近の展望台で、滝を眼下に見下ろすことが出来、こちらは無料で利用可能です。『観瀑台....  more

  • It is not that stunning in winter as one of the most famous falls in Japan. It is free for everyone but you can buy ticket to take elevator down to the lower position to enjoy the exclusive view, which is within expectation. I bid the view will be much impressive if coming in Autumn.
  • Amazing waterfalls.. one of the tallest in Japan (not the tallest). Autumn foliage there is just breathtaking. You can view the waterfalls for free from a viewing platform or go down to view them up more closely for a fee of 600 yen if I'm not mistaken
