Kakusenkei Gorge, Kaga

Visiting Kakusenkei Gorge lets you see why the famous Japanese poet Bassho was inspired to write about it. Take a moderately challenging hike on the 1.3 km (0.8 mi) long walking trail and enjoy the nature around you. A red bridge is a popular stop for taking some memorable photos, but you can also take a break from hiking at the small bar where you can have a drink while sitting on the riverbank.

  • I am not a Japanese fan, I do not know the name of "the way of the Olympics". The tour is simply written as "the way of the Olympics", located in the Japanese east, a famous historical trail. "Leo" is the road deep, "the details" is a long way. Originally a famous Japanese haiku poet Pine Tail banana, remember that he went through this journey of the news, as well as the scenery along the road to travel, and this way there are many left the Ving Haiku stone tablets, after the end of the road to the pine tail banana was called "the Tao." ... I don't have the nutrients, so I don't have the body.

  • This is a nice walk at Yamanaka Onsen, not far from the main street, Especially during autumn leave season  more »
  • 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.  more »
