Kakusenkei Gorge, Kaga

(160+ reviews on the web)
Valley Nature / Park
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. Arrange to visit Kakusenkei Gorge and other attractions in Kaga using our Kaga tour planner.
