Kirifuri Falls


One of the three great waterfalls of Nikko (along with Kegon and Ryuzu), 75-meter-high, two-tiered Kirifuri Falls flow into the Kirifuri River. Splashing off rocks on the way down, the water descends as a fine mist (kiri), after which the falls were named. The nearby observation deck is the best place from which to view the falls, especially when surrounded by warm autumn colors.

How to get there:
10 minutes from Nikko Station or Tobu-Nikko Station on buses bound for Tobu Kirifurikogen/Ozasa Bokujo, then a 15-minute walk from Kirifuri-no-taki bus stop.
