The Three Greatest Falls in Japan!

Nachi Falls, Kegon Falls, and Fukuroda Falls

There are many waterfalls in Japan. I bet you must have seen a few in your previous Japan trips. Which one is your most favorite falls? Today, we will show you the three greatest falls in Japan. See if you have already visited any of them so far!

01. Nachi Falls in Wakayama Prefecture


On our way to the famous Nachi Falls, we bumped into two cute girls who were in the traditional Heian period costumes. Of course we could not miss this special chance to take a picture with them.  Maybe you can try to rent the same costumes and experience the Kumano Nachi Taisha in a different way!


Nachi Falls

Nachi Falls is located in Nachikatsuura in Wakayama Prefecture. It has a drop of 133 meters, and it is the tallest waterfall with a single drop of water in Japan! We were told that there is 1 ton of water falling down each second! That's so amazing!


Actually there is a great photo spot to include both the Nachi Falls and the Seiganto-ji in the picture. Look how nice the picture was taken!


How about going up the tower and get a closer look of the famous Nachi Falls!

Kegon Falls is located in Nikko in Tochigi Prefecture. You are right! There is another really famous sightseeing spot located in Nikko which is the Nikko Toshogu (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Just around 30 minutes drive from Nikko Toshogu, you can reach Kegon Falls in Nikko National Park.

Kegon Falls has a height of 97 meters and there are about 12 smaller waterfalls located on the sides of Kegon Falls.

Fukuroda Falls is located in Daigo-machi in Ibaraki Prefecture. The height of the fall is about 120 meters tall and the width is 73 meters wide. Unlike other falls that you have seen, Fukuroda Falls is famous for the slowness and calmness. Personally, I like this falls the most!

In winter, you can try to climb and walk on the falls since it is all frozen! What an amazing way to experience Fukuroda Falls!
