Fodor's Review

A poetic description says it all and still holds true: "the water," wrote the great 17th-century poet Basho, "seemed to take a flying leap and drop a hundred feet from the top of a cave into a green pool surrounded by a thousand rocks. One was supposed to inch one's way into the cave and enjoy the falls from behind." The falls and the gorge are striking—but you should make the climb only if you have good hiking shoes and are willing to get wet in the process.

Sight Information


The steep climb to the cave begins at the Arasawa bus stop, with a turn to the right off the Chuzenji road., Nikko, Tochigi-ken, 321-1442, Japan
