Kegon-no-taki Falls in Nikko is one of Japan’s three greatest falls (Nachi-no-taki, and Fukuroda-no-taki Falls are the other two). The falls are usually surrounded by autumn leaves from mid to late October. If you visit it in the morning, the lighting is at its best. You might even see a rainbow appearing over the falls. A free observatory deck is to the right of the falls, and there is also an observatory accessed by an elevator from inside the building that costs 530 yen. Several food stands and restaurants surround the parking lot. Amazake (warmed rice wine) will make you feel warm in the cold autumn morning!

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS: An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here. 日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
