This is a short trip from Kanuodate, Akita. The entire trip to cover Dakigaeri-keikoku Gorge(抱返り渓谷) takes about 1 and a half hour. When I was there in mid-Oct, 2019, only 30-40% of the trees were red or yellow. If I were there at the end of Oct or early Nov., this Gorge would be amazingly red and yellow. Shuttle Bus from Kakunodate Station: Dakigaeri-keikoku Gorge(抱返り渓谷):15 minutes by bus from JR Kakunodate Station. In autumn, a Y1,000 1-Day shuttle bus runs from Kakunodate Station 6 times a day: The bus ticket covers all the way to Tazawa Lake Station. You can cover these two places with just one ticket. Depart: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15.00. Return: 10.30, 11.30, 12.30, 13.30, 14.30 and 15.30

The end of April or the beginning of May is good for hiking if you like hiking or walking and nature. Beautiful scenery and not many people.

This is a very popular location and we visited on a day where there seemed to be more activity than usual. There were a variety of food stalls and a ceremony occurring in the Shinto Shrine near the start of the walk. There is a huge car park but as we were early we had an uncrowded walk up to the falls. The valley was a delight in its autumn colours and the stream particularly beautiful. By the time we finished the walk the whole area had become very crowded with a large number of tour buses arriving so an early visit is recommended.

The time visited was not the best time of Japan Autumn. However, it doesn't matter. The walking route is fine, full of beautiful plants and color of water in the river. You can enjoy the walking along. On the other hand, please make reservation of bus ticket in advance or check with Tourist Information Center at Kakunodate Station. I am not sure that any bus schedule to valley at normal time.

It is a river gorge which provides tourists with a good variety of sightseeing and leisure walk along the gorge, up to the restricted mark due to landscape challenge. If you set off early, you may avoid the big crowds of tour groups, who will always stop by as a regular spot. The reason is that the path is quite narrow, allowing only limited passers by in the path itself. Also, you may find taking photos at ease is preferred than wasting time for passers by to pass.
