Kanmangafuchi Gorge (it's not an abyss, not even close) is a peaceful place for a quiet walk by the river on the outskirts of Nikko. Check local tourist maps for the best way to get there, as there are a few different options and the...More

We took a very pleasant walk here during our trip to Nikko. This area was wonderful and very peaceful. The river that flows through the gorge contributes to the beautiful scenery. You can easily reach this area on a public bus and then it is...More

A beautiful quiet place worth a visit. If you're visiting the Toshogu shrine, it's walking distance from there, maybe 20minutes. It's really good because there are not many people there, so it's a good place to just relax and enjoy nature. You can listen to...More

I’ve been to this area twice now and each time I’ve found walking along this track to be a lovely peaceful walk. Admittedly I was staying at the far end of Nikko and after a hectic day of sightseeing it was lovely to walk back...More

We walked the trail early morning and called into the Nikko Botanic Gardens on the way. The gardens aren't like the manicured gardens you'd expect in Japan but the diversity of plants, birds etc is great. We also stopped at the shrine to the five...More

This abyss has been formed by a volcanic eruption. The walk is not hard, nature is beautiful (like in the whole Nikko) and a line of ghost Jizo statues is an added interest.

On a sunny day, walking along Buddha statues to get very nice views of the river created by a lava flow centuries ago. A must do

Well whole Nikko area is a tourist trap. Small ordinary bridge, on wbich you have to pay and it is closed one side... Few temples with high entrance fees, this statues, there are just statues... So boring trip and waste of time and money!
