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.

  • Cherry blossoms in Tokyo's all over and done, visit the Sun and still enjoy cherry blossoms. And iroha-Zaka slope trees, still in the spring much earlier. Look in the summer so no views at this time are highly recommended.

  • Enjoy the four seasons of nature tourism road. 7 kilometers over 800 M above sea level near 馬返shi, 500 m climb. Line up always 2 lane-, large-sized buses during the who curve just two stereo lane-keep chronic congestion. Akechidaira and black flat parking spots. I think April is OK, but when I went to the end of March was on winter tires. You will just remain a little snow on the side of the road.

  • 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.

  • 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
