Kegon Waterfall (華厳の滝, Kegon no taki) is listed as one of the three most beautiful falls in Japan along with Nachi Waterfall in Wakayama Prefecture and Fukuroda Waterfall in Ibaraki Prefecture. It is located in Nikko and is the most famous waterfall out of the many in the area. Kegon Waterfall is about 100 meters high and is the only exit for the waters of Lake Chuzenji to exit from. The best time to see the waterfall would be in the autumn season. The surrounding foliage of Kegon Waterfall painted in fall hues is a sight not to miss. This all can be enjoyed from the free observation platform that can be reached by foot. For an even more impressive view you can pay to take an elevator to the base of the waterfall. If you are looking for an angle where you can see both Kegon Waterfall and Lake Chuzenji at the same time, then Akechidaira Observatory is what you are looking for. It can be accessed by taking the ropeway from Akechidaira Plateau. Another season that provides an impressive sight is in the winter season. At this time the waterfall would almost be completely frozen solid leaving behind an impressive view.
