Ryuokyo Canyon, Nikko
(4.2/5 based on 140+ 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. Use our Nikko vacation route planner to add Ryuokyo Canyon and other attractions to your Nikko vacation plans.

  • 來到這裡時是下雨天,但完全不會妨礙健行的進行,適合各式年齡層,在秋天應該是美麗的,這裡屬於小巧的瀑布和河川,由當地的地圖上顯示這整條河川像極了一條龍,我們只有走其中一段,最大眾的腳程剛好繞一圈。風景不錯適合慢慢健行。 
  • 11/6 just a little bit earlier in the autumn, for the first time went with 4 friends. Musasabi-Bashi Bridge tour course attention to your feet while taking pictures and was really wiped out. Word of mouth to see if I couldn't. Very much appreciated.

  • 龍王峽站本身的周邊景色就不錯。步行前往龍王峽,可以在途中的小店無料借用枴杖哦!十一月中的周邊景色真的很療癒。走玩一圈步道需要一點腳力。
