The paved path leads you along an unbelievably beautiful river gorge in the mountains. We spend an hour an a half and could have gone on for 3 hours or more. Incredibly beautiful - the paved path made walking easy, and each turn was more stunning than the last.

We chose this destination as part of our 12 day trip to Japan based on our love of nature and hiking and we were not disappointed! The day that we went there was threat of rain, but after hiking in excess of 7 hours it only started to rain at the very end of our trip. The overcast conditions accentuated... More

Me and my partner decided to get out of the Hiroshima city for the day and go to a more natural setting. Sandankyo was a cracking choice. We took a 4 hour walk through the gorge which was stunning. The bus cost around ¥1400 each way each and took just over an hour. It drops you right at the start... More

Sandankyo offers a fabulous contrast to the city life of Hiroshima. The trails are well marked and follow a river that has cut through a valley leaving rapids and boulders in its path. The crowds are sparse (except when the leaves are turning) and it is a remarkable experience. If you have a car it is easy to get to... More
