This is a a beautiful waterfall, well off the beaten track, that is definitely worth a visit if you have your own transport. It is located 2.5 km up a clearly signposted road, midway between Nikko and the more famous Kegon Falls.
The falls themselves are not that large but I found the setting really special: they're in a fairly narrow canyon with maybe 3 or 4 smaller waterfalls clustered around them and I left with a slightly 'lost world' type feeling. It's a 5-10 minute walk to the falls from the car park, with one significant climb.
I was there on a weekend in early September and didn't see a single other person whilst I was there.
If you have your own car, I would highly recommend stopping in, as it's almost certainly you'll be driving up the main road near here if you are in the Nikko Area. If you're using public transport, unless you're in the area for an extended time, there are probably better choices, given the 2.5km walk from the bus stop is not especially scenic.
To contrast with Kegon Falls, these are smaller and less spectacular but don't have any of the crowds.
