We drove here and discovered that there was free parking at the Kanman Park, just go down some suspiciously narrow streets with your car and there you go. Once you see the stone fellows with the red chapeaus in the park you will know you...More

The gorge is quite a walk from Nikko station, but mostly along the river so it is flat, and it's also paved so it's not hard. The statues and the gorge itself are more than worth the effort, and perhaps because it's farther than shrines,...More

Going to this gorge was a long walk (more than a kilometer) from the bus stop but reaching it was rewarding. The gizus lining the gorge was a beautiful site with their red caps and aprons. If only we knew why they were dressed like...More

These sculptures look so great and the surrounding waterfalls are also amazing. It's a great place to walk and luckily not a lot of tourists. We could even drag our 7yo to walk there and back to the station as it was a great fun.

Once you find this, you will be amazed. Water features are very pretty, and the line of buddha statues very impressive. When you tire of super fancy temples, come here for more restful simplicity.

Kanmangafuchi Abyss (憾満ヶ淵) along the Daiya River was formed by an eruption of nearby Mount Nantai. This gorge is a soothing riverside walking trail of raw nature and abundant negative ions to purify your body and soul. Apart from the natural beauty, Kanmangafuchi Abyss is...More

This was one of my favorite places in Japan. It is very calm and it is away from the crowds because the sightseeing bus does not stop anywhere nearby. We walked from Shinkyo bridge to this place in about 20 minutes and it wasn't hard...More
