We went for a leisure walk along the Kakusenkei Gorge around noon time. The trail is easy to walk but some areas could be slippery when wet. As we were there on a dry day, the walk was very pleasant and it took us 30mins...More

Comfortable walk in this gorgeous place with cute bridges across the river. If your timing is right and not raining, etc, you may enjoy having coffee and desserts at the riverside little open cafe as well.

Nice & pleasant walk. Though with quite a few steps here and there it is not suitable for those who have mobility problems. Nice break from the little onsen village of Yamanaka. Good viewpoint at the second bridge.

A must visit as the scenery is stunning. Plan to spend at least 2 hours in this location. Best if you can stay around the area as the timing of the tourist bus may not be as convenient.
