Ryuokyo Canyon, Nikko

4.2
#6 of 23 in Nature in Nikko
Water Body Nature / Park
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.

  • Views of the River Valley is surrounded by green and behind the scenes is the view itself. You can also try the Green Cross-Strait from the top of the bridge if. Arrives at the bridge but I found that a little hard its value is 10 minutes.

  • Rained so little walks was the sunny I think because it had, might be best if you before the Dragon Valley has a large free car park and Park the car in its place, trains go from the kawaji Onsen, from Dragon Gorge walk down to best. Dragon gorge located shear and a noodle shop, cheap and delicious and the restaurant is beautiful.

  • Not too many visitors to this spot, but many elderly people in Japan and the family to visit. There are waterfalls and landscapes. Suriel individual mountains and long, open three sections, but've well in front of the United States, is worth a visit. Traffic is still very convenient, near the dining hall. MTV alert

Where to stay in Nikko

Rich in history, culture, and nature, you'll be pleased to find that Nikko also boasts a rich variety of accommodations. Competition may be pretty fierce at peak times, but make your reservation early and you'll be able to find somewhere to sleep that suits your style. Luxury hotels and boutiques with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) never stray too far from the river, while hostels and guesthouses tend to be tucked away on side streets, and up in the north of town. Mid-range and standard hotels lie close to the main train stations and by the main plazas.
