What travelers are saying
- We were driving from the Iya Valley to Tokushima City, so we planned a morning visit to Kurozou Marshland to break up the journey. If you're passing by, this is a great place to stop, but I wouldn't choose it as a destination on its own. That being said, the park is well maintained and well designed. The park features a gravel trail running beside the marsh, as well as elevated boardwalks traversing the marsh. When we visited in January 2016, all the offices were closed (although the park itself is open 365 days a year and the bathrooms were open), but it seems that there is a visitors center as well as a building devoted to information about local wildlife. At one end of the park is たびの尻滝 waterfall. From there, you can make a 45-minute descent to the 松尾川温泉 onsen on a fully paved trail which starts out gentle but becomes quite steep. The onsen was closed for the season (its vending machines were working, though), so we just walked right back up the the marsh.Written January 8, 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Mt. Miune is the second-highest mountain in Tokushima Prefecture, after Mt. Tsurugi. We hiked it in early January 2016. Although there were a few icy patches on the trail, they appeared only toward the peak. The hike provided a nice variety of scenery and some stunning views that opened up as we reached the peak.
The base parking lot is large and located on the east side of the famed scarecrow village of Nagoro. Signs for the parking lot are in English and Japanese. There are bathrooms, but they were closed when we visited. You should definitely bring whatever provisions you need, as there didn't seem to be any kind of (open) stores nearby.
There is a second, much smaller parking lot, located up a gravel road to the right of the base lot. If you have an ATV or a Land Rover, you might be able to drive on the road without destroying your car. The road is in terrible condition. The hike from the base parking lot to the second parking lot took about 30 minutes.
The ascent to the peak took us about 2.5 hours. The ascent is fairly gentle until approximately the final 30 minutes, at which point the trail becomes steeper and narrower. There's a spacious hut at the peak. Multiday hikes to many of the surrounding mountains are possible.Written January 8, 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- You can get the tickets once you arrive at the reception. Ticket for an adult is 1200 yen and the boat ride is around 30mins (round trip). Since the temperature was quite cold, the services staff gave one disposable hand warmer for each of us which is very thoughtful.
We got our tickets and waited for 10mins for our ride. The waiting area is quite good to take photos. Very lucky, we were the only two passengers for our boat which actually one boat can accommodate 25ppl. The boatman asked us where we from and selected the mandarin version of broadcast for us so we can understand more about the history and the scenic. The ride is pleasant and not tumble at all.Written February 6, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- My teenaged daughter and I spent a couple fun hours doing the Adventure Course, which included four different rope courses up in the trees plus a long zip line over the river and a shorter one back. After initial "training" for the ropes courses, your group is set loose to work your way through the courses at our own speed. A few places provide a choice between "easy" and "difficult." It's a fun way to enjoy some time laughing together (and probably reminding yourself that your arm and leg muscles aren't as strong as they used to be). There seemed to be only one English-speaking guide that day, so he specifically helped us with the several things that required us to understand instructions (initial training, the "Tarzan swing," and the zip-lines). Considering the amount of time and number/type of activities - and compared to what similar courses in the US typically cost, Y4,100 per person was a good value. Make sure you buy the gloves and put on some bug spray! We had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend it!Written September 5, 2020
- This rafting is perfect for family, even kids! Just a few screams, most of the time are in calm water. Our guide is great and have many small games along the way!Written July 26, 2016
