#274: Urami Falls (category: waterfall)
Urami Falls is a famous waterfall in Nikko (refer to #067). It is one of Japan's Top 100 Waterfalls and often selected as one of the three great waterfalls in Nikko, along with Kegon Falls (refer to #272) and Kirifuri Falls (refer to #273).
The word "ura" in "urami" is "back (reverse side)" in English and "mi" is "seeing", respectively. As its name indicates, the backside of the waterfall could be seen from the path located behind the waterfall in the past. However, it is no longer possible nowadays because the upper part of the waterfall collapsed and the path is blocked.
