Your driver will pick you up at your hotel, the nearest station, or your preferred location around Tokyo. Passing by Irohazaka Route, made up of 48 hairpin turns throughout the different upslope and downslope roads, it is known as the best place to view the autumn leaves. Stop at Kegon Falls, the most famous of Nikko’s 48 waterfalls. Water from Lake Chuzenji falls 97 meters straight down to the rocks below creating a dynamic and artistic work of nature. A special lift takes visitors to the basin where the force and roar of the water can be witnessed close up. Visit the waterfall when surrounded by the fresh green leaves in May, house martins in June or the “12 falls” - small streams of the frozen waterfall clad in blue ice - during January and February.

Take a hike along the trail for a personal experience with the plants and birds that visit the place. Or head over to the observation deck for a stunning panoramic view of the marshlands.
