The Yudaki Waterfall

The Yudaki Waterfall is located on the southern edge of Lake Yunoko. It is 70 meters high, and 25 meters wide. At the basin of the waterfall, one can observe the powerful flow from the observatory.


Lake Yunoko is a dammed lake created by the lava flow from the eruption of Mt. Mitsudake. The altitude of the lake is 1478 meters and its circumference is 3 kilometers. It takes about 1 hour to go round the lake.


The entire area of the 'Oku-Nikko-Shitsugen' (Wetlands of Oku-Nikko) is designated as the Nikko National Park. In 2005 the area was declared wetlands of international importance by the Ramsar Convention.
