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.

Best not to come when raining, it might be quite slippery! The views are lovely though and the trail is relatively easy to follow (no guard rails though so watch your toddlers!), it's quite manageable even if you only do half of it (from one...More

Easy access from Yamanaka-onsen, calm and fresh air! Beautiful bridges and cafe on the river is a great place in summer. 山中温泉ってこんなに素敵なところがあったんですね。渓流沿いに約1時間の散策はとてもさわやかです。

We took a bus from Kagaonsen. It was so lovely strolling the gorge, admiring the handiwork of temples and bridges. We were the only westerners, in fact there were very few people which was lovely. There are so many beautiful trees and plants, so many...More
