Kegon-no-Taki Falls is the most famous of the many waterfalls in Nikko; rated one of the three best waterfalls in Japan, along with Fukuroda-no-Taki Falls in Ibaraki prefecture and Nachi-no-Taki Falls in Wakayama prefecture.
The river drops 97 meters straight down from a cliff, churning up a ceaseless roar at the base.
This is a great spot for nature viewing.
There are two observation decks: one is at the top of the waterfall, and the other is near the basin (You need to take the elevator to get there).
