Kegon Falls

Kegon Falls

Nikko is a beautiful place. Ever since I've learned about it, I've wanted to travel there. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site because of it's beauty and cultural significance, as Tokugawa Ieasu's remains are located within the Tosho-gu shrine grounds.

Kegon Falls is fed by lake Chuzenji, and offers an immaculate view during all seasons. It also is a notorious suicide spot, made famous when a young poet carved his final words in the trunk of a tree before plummeting to the rocks below.
