Kirifuri Waterfall was another nice waterfall in Nikko particularly during autumn months when the tree leaves changed colors. It was a bit far from the town center but the environment should be much relaxing. There were tracks leading to the fall. For those who used...More

We took a walk here late one afternoon and were pleased we did. It's a pleasant walk in lovely surroundings. A nice cake shop/restaurant if you want a pitstop. Very scenic.

A short walk in the mist to this waterfall. Was very beautiful and a little surreal in the mist. The mountains are called the Misty Mountains.
