Kanmangafuchi Abyss was formed by an eruption of nearby Mount Nantai. This gorge near central Nikko is only a few hundred meters long and can be enjoyed from a pleasant riverside walking trail. It is also known for its row of stone statues of Jizo, a Bodhisattva who cares for the deceased. It can be reached by taking the world heritage bus to stop no. 8 and about 15 mins by foot through a quiet neighbourhood or about 10 mins from the main Tobu Nikko station.

By going to the botanical garden you get access to a platform beside this gorge. Good place to spot the Bake Jizo as well.

This is an adventure; get a good map if you make wrong turn - I did. Another story. If a nature buff you have seen this type of rapids before but not facing a shrine area; unique. it is very damp and has abundent moss, good traction boots are a good idea.

After I arrived in Nikko, I took a walk along this gorge in the winter sun. It was a very pleasant track that took in sights along the river and gorge, including a nice array of Jizos with their red berets and pennant scarves.

Decided to take a detour here today as it was too foggy to see the Kegon Falls and Lake Chuzenji, Kammangafuchi Gorge is a good place to relax and enjoy nature. Kammangafuchi Gorge is about a 20mins walk from the shrines and while enjoying the walk by the river, you’ll definitely see the main highlight of the area which are the rows of Jizo statues that are line up on one side of the gorge.

Worth visiting the area after visiting the shrines.

this is a little hidden gem which is a nice stroll of about 30min up an avenue of trees and past a shrine and long past all these Buddas wandering along the track near the river in the forest.in autum it would be a site to behold with all the leaves changing clour

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 route was a little unclear the way we went in. From a park suitable for picnics, you walk into the reserve past a little cafe and public toilets to the path along the river. The river itself is very picturesque and surrounded by peaceful forest, with a few viewing spots that are particularly good for photography. We found the walk along the river, and the houses and gardens in suburbia, more interesting than the jizo statues, but that's a personal thing.

It's a good place for a walk in the peace and quiet, but wouldn't be our first recommendation for what to see in Nikko.

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 a short walk to the actual gorge. I would definitely do this if you come to Nikko, It was one of the high points of our visit.

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 the sound of the water running while you walk and appreciate the Jizo statues, and take great pictures. If you have Google maps you can search for "Kanman park", that's where the trail starts. You don't have to walk much there, it's a very short track, and on the way there, there's also a popular café to try shaved ice (Nikko Coffee).

We visited on a sunshiney day after spending the morning in the busy shrines. It was wonderful to experience the peaceful sounds of the river and the bright greens of the foliage. Water was turquoise blue and the red capsand capes of the jizu were a gorgeous contrast. Worth the walk!
