Kegon Falls 華厳の滝
The only outlet for Lake Chuzenji, which was formed by the natural damming of a river after Mount Nantai erupted, this waterfall has a 97-meter drop. A dozen other waterfalls are located behind and to the side, creating a cacophony of sound in the area.

A beautiful waterfall with swooping swallows and gorgeous views. A great place to visit along with the Chuzenji Lake and the Nikko temple complex.
There is also a visitors center next to the parking lot.
Address: 2479-2 Chugushi, Nikko 321-1661, Tochigi Prefecture
Waterfall is pretty, the access road travels thru some pretty scenery as well. If you view the waterfall from a platform at night it's quite a beautiful sight.
Make sure you check the timetables before going to Kegan Falls. I visited Toshogu first with the idea of heading to Kegon afterwards, only to find out there were no more buses going the direction of Kegan Falls. (Even though it wasn't that late in the afternoon!)
