Nikko's three most famous waterfalls are Kegon Falls, Kirifuri Falls, and Urami Falls. Yudaki Falls is one of the three most famous waterfalls in Okunikko (Inner Nikko), along with Kegon Falls and Ryuzu Falls, and flows down from the southern end of Lake Yunoko. The waterfall is located near Yumoto Onsen, a small hot spring in Okunikko. It is said that Lake Yunoko was dammed up by the eruption of Mt. Mitake, resulting in the formation of Yudaki Falls. The waterfall is 70 meters tall and 100 meters long. The highlight is the impressive view from the viewing platform located near the basin of the waterfall.
Furthermore, Yudaki Falls is also known for its hot springs, and Yumoto Onsen is located on the shores of Lake Yunoko.
