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!
That gorge is not very touristy as the tourists mostly keep to the city center with its temples or go far to the west up the mountains. To get to this gorge, you need to stop at a bus stop near the city edge and...More
Finished the usual touristy temples and shrines trail and decided to finish off the day with this visit to the Nikko Kammangafuchi Gorge.
Best decision of the day!!
It was a snowy winter wonderland walk thru the thick fluffy snow that drifted down the day...More
After visiting the Toshogu Shrine in Nikko, we made our way to Kammangafuchi Gorge on foot. The approx 25 minute walk to the gorge was in itself quite nice as you walk into the town, past people's houses and yards, inns, and along...More
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.

Hi! From the Tobu Nikko or JR Nikko Station, you can get there by bus or by taxi (or you can rent a car). For the bus, please note that in most cases, the bus will have no wheelchair access (from what I observed). Then, upon getting off at the nearest bus stop to Kammangauchi, you have to walk for 10+ minutes. The road here is concrete but not flat, BUT manageable by wheelchair. As you pass a local inn and park, the dirt road starts. If you take it slow, I think, its possible by wheelchair. You can go until the 1st line up of Jizo (the statues with the red bibs). Be mindful of other people around there because the road in front of the Jizo's is very narrow. BUT if you can go on a weekday or low season (like now!), there are usually no people milling around. After this, it would be difficult to move forward, because you have to climb a stone stairs. You will just miss the sort of hut that has a view of the river and the 2nd line up of Jizo's. Other than that, I think it's still worth a visit.
