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.

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!

This is a lovely area for a walk along the river to the gorge. Along the paths on the South side are about 70 Jizo statues. It is said that every time you count them you get a different number.

Our accommodation in Nikko was located 10 minutes away from this mysterious gorge along the river so we decided to wake up early in the morning to have a nice stroll. The highlight is obviously the rows and rows of Jizo statues that line up...More

We were directed to take this wall along the riverbank by a lovely lady working at the tourist information desk in the train station. The river is beautiful and the statues with the red hats along the trails are a very interesting sight. There are...More
