Beautiful autumn colours. Short walk from the road. Readily accessible. Lower side access to view the falls is from the balcony of the gift shop

There are the upper and lower side of the ryuzu waterfall. I personally prefer the upper side which is a 5-10 min drive from the lower side. We went during late October and the color was simply fantastic. Do go between mid to late October as this is the best time for autumn colors. The upper side has a good... More

The waterfall is known as the "dragon waterfall" thanks to its amazing autumn fall colors. Do not miss it!

One of the most impressive waterfall in Nikko national park. It was peak color when I was there. Must see if you visit Nikko in Autumn

We visited with all the gorgeous autumn colours in full bloom. It's relatively easy to get to on the bus, hop off then back on to your next destination.

The falls are a sight worth seeing in Autumn – two waterfalls flowing through the bright red foliage ! It’s a very small platform from where you can see this beautiful sight so be patient and try going early to beat the crowds. After the falls we walked up along the river and it was pretty sight thanks to the... More

Ryuzu waterfall was very beautiful. If you visit, don't forget to walk up the path to the top of the waterfall. If you climb up for about 10 minutes, you have a great view of the waterfall and Lake Chuzenji in the background.

This fall is very famous for its beauty. Leaves turn out red colous in mid-October, earlier than other sight seeing spots in Nikko area. You can go there with bus from Nikko station. There is a bus stop for the fall. There is a restaurant near the fall and the restaurant is one of the view spots. The fall is... More
