Japan's Nikko National Park is famous for its waterfalls, as well as lakes, mountain scenery and the tomb of the Tokugawa shogun. The most famous waterfall is Kegon falls, at 100 meters high unfortunately a notorious place for suicides (sometimes called "suicide falls" for this reason), and there are many others.
