We were staying in a guesthouse outside of Nikko, just a couple of minutes’ walk from a small bridge across the River Daiya. Our host recommended a circular walk for us which we found amazing. At first we were a bit nervous when he warned...More

We visited on a rainy day in early April and managed to have the Gorge to ourselves for most of the time. We walked from Toshu-Gu, stopping for lunch at Nishisando, and on through a nice suburban area. It took about 15-20 mins to get...More
