Located on Arasawa River, a tributary of Daiya River, Urami Falls is one of the three famous waterfalls of Nikko along with Kegon Falls and Kirifuri Falls. The poet Matsuo Basho, who visited the area in 1689, composed the following haiku: "Early summer, resting under the falls, a little while." The road leading to the back of the falls, where Fudomyo'o is enshrined, was destroyed by the flood of 1902 as shown by this photograph.
