Irohazaka Route, Nikko
(3.1/5 based on 180 reviews on the web)
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. Make Irohazaka Route a part of your Nikko vacation plans using our Nikko trip generator.

  • Say, surprised, was coming. This is the recommended waterfall. No waterfall or try saying, please confirm on your own.

  • 紅葉季節的伊呂坡坂,彎彎曲曲的道在一片五顏六色中,很美. 可惜公車只是經過而已,不能中途下車,路的寬度跟距離,也不適合步行散步,否則這樣的美景肯定是一百分的. 自行開車的,中間有觀景的地方,可以駐足一下,如果是搭公車的話,從東武日光站出現時,在明治平下車,可以看到不錯的畫面. 要注意的是,回東武日光站,不會經過明治平觀景台,也就沒機會拍到這個美美的彎道了. 
  • You have been to Toshogu Shrine in the tour ago. I thought since you couldn't go up to Lake Chuzenji, one day I want to go. Just before televisions with iroha Hill traffic situation, however, and wondered if he was the best weather and exactly at that time of autumn plunge went out. I think that bus was full at 9:00 30 arrival and were good to go.
