Ryuokyo Canyon, Nikko

Categories: Bodies of Water, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web
Immerse yourself in nature in Ryuokyo Canyon, home of a meandering emerald-green river resembling a dragon. Hovering steel span bridges and suspended waterfalls make this 3 km long (2 mi) trek one to remember, especially for nature lovers. Somewhat difficult to navigate to from Nikko, this ravine contains striking blue-green water beneath wisteria trees and unmatched views of the canyon from the bridges. This medium-intensity hike on a well-maintained trail requires good footwear, and you should watch out for steep and slippery steps on rainy days.
