Nice view. Extra 300yen takes you to the observation deck right in front of the falls and you get a piece of small dish to drink the water from the falls for long life.

Now all visitors to this beautiful area take the time to hike down yet another set of ancient stone stairs just to look up at a waterfall, but if your health will allow, it's worth the effort. This is the tallest waterfall in Japan at...More

Train from Osaka/Nara is a good 4 hours, so you will likely need to stay over in Nachikatsuura to not feel too rushed. And you'll want to take your time here - from the Daimonzaka to the Nachi Falls, the sights are beautiful on a...More

Nachi would be a minimum of 5 hrs round-trip by car from Ise, so that alone would require one full day. The other three could be done in two days, depending on how much you want to see in Toba.
