The Kegon Waterfall is 97 meters high and located near the city of Nikko in Tochigi Prefecture. Water from Lake Chuzenji feeds this powerful waterfall that is one of the most top three in Japan. At the same time, travelers will be able to climb an elevator to see the strength of the waterfall from a close distance (the price is ¥ 550 for high school students or adults and ¥ 330 for elementary school students).
Therefore, From the viewpoint located at the base of the waterfall, you can see a beautiful image of the fall of the water; Many travelers come in May when the water level increases to cause of snowmelt. In winter, the waterfall freezes, and in spring, the azaleas and cherry blossoms bloom.
On the other hand, In summer, the swallows flutter by the water, and in autumn, the shades of foliage are beautiful, attracting many travelers. The elevator schedule is from 8 to 17 hours except in December to March that operates until 4:30 p.m. After enjoying the spectacle of nature at the Kegon waterfall, we recommend you try the fried Yuba in the restaurant next to the parking lot.

The round-trip ticket for the cable car priced at ¥ 730 for adults and ¥ 370 for children. You must add this in your list of things to do in japan in 2o2o.
