    The forested hills and waterfalls of the Nikko National Park area will be a welcome respite to the monumentality of the architecture of Tokugawa.

    Take a 10 km (6.2 mile) bus ride up the spectacular winding Irohazaka Highway to Chuzenji, even if you are here only on a daytrip: The view of Mt. Nantai (2,484 m; 8148 ft) and the valley below is magnificent.

    Or it maybe better to take a taxi: Tell the driver to stop at "Akechi-daira", which is the half-way point if you have less time or more money.

    Lake Chuzenji, at 1270 m (4166 ft) above sea level was made eons ago when a now-dormant volcano erupted and blocked the rive course, creating two cataracts. The 96 m (315 ft) Kegon-no- taki at the south end is the country’s most famous waterfall.

    An elevator takes sightseers to an observation platform in the gore below the falls are especially impressive after a summer rain, when the sunshine produces a single or even bauble rainbow in the spray. In the winter the falls form a spectacular cascade of icicles.

    At the gorge’s north end Ryuzu-no-taki (“Dragon’s Head Falls”) is broader but not as high; is has the additional merit of a teahouse, where you can sit and watch the water tumble into the lake.

    Famous for its rainbow trout, Chuzeni is too cold for swinging most of the year, but visitors throng to this area for its spectacular spring and fall scenery and for its numerous hot sprints resorts.

    The most impressive historical monument on the eastern shore of the lake is Chuzenji a sub temple to Toshogu’s Rinnoji. The temple enshrines a 5 m (16-ft) standing figure of Kannon, the goddess of Mercy, said to have been carved more than 1000 years ago from the trunk of a single Judas tree.

        • The colour of the lake is very pristine and intriguing. It is very breathtaking when it is seen from Mount Hangetsu. You can visit it in 4 different seasons because it has four different looks but you should visit it during autumn because it will be the most beautiful in that season.
        • It's a nice lake and worth the little efforr it takes to get there feom Nikko.
        • Beautiful view and with the snow beside the lake in winter makes it more beautiful. A good spot for sightseeing and capturing some nice photographs.
        • Very serene lake with beautiful views. Popular vacation area for Japanese. Enjoy some of the local food (fish) sold around the lake. When weather is nice, take a boat ride in the lake. There are many areas you can walk at around the lake if you don't wish to go in the water. It is near other sites in Nikko, such as the Kegon Falls. So if you visit either site, do make sure to see the other.
        • It's really beautiful lake with nice hot springs. Perfect for relaxing walks in nature.
