Irohazaka Route, Nikko

3.7
#17 of 163 in Things to do in Nikko
Travel the spectacular and winding ribbon of Irohazaka Route, which carves its snaking path up and down the mountainous landscape. With a total of 48 hairpins, it's not a drive for the faint of heart--but if you enjoy a bit of a challenge, you'll witness spectacular views across the valley, with observational points along the way. Scenic any time of year, the hills prove particularly memorable from October to early November, as the surrounding trees take on rusty tones.

  • Went in the tour guide's staff. "Iroha NI HO to and..." and could turn on the curve are so there is a lot of curves. Roads are dedicated uplink and downlink, so have a lot of curves, but it is safe. Started going on as autumn leaves, clean.

  • To go to Lake Chuzenji from the Sun happens to be passed. Could not remember too much is going to be passed on a school trip. People who can afford several more views can be enjoyed.

  • What made the great curve slope so well and touching. Climbed dedicated descending curve each "iroha, and ' the signboard. The practice had heard leaning in the direction of the curve of curves in to motion sickness, so I was worried, but I hope so. Had to safely feel not bad.

  • nice road
  • I went off the tourist season. Car was running smoothly, at least. Winding road since drivers enjoy the views. Until now must be allowed enough staff. Anyone who likes driving birds or may be Hill's color! I thought it was the perfect name. Who at any time became the godmother or want to know

  • Hovers like a mille-feuille of downhill. While toll overtaking is quite dangerous in the rules, let's run. Too much on the tone, turning at the curve and at the tight curve of the difference between the high and low car body screw. Even during the week before the car pretty much causes traffic jams. Even in winter here is not closed to traffic. Earlier gold plus pass is closed to traffic so caution is required.
