It was amazing waterfall and canyon with color leaves. When i visited here, it was after a big typhoon, so down the river wasn't much clean. If you drive a car here, i recommend drive to downtown road. It's pretty narrow, but you can enjoy...More

The canyon is easily accessible by train and the beauty of the place was astonishing with full autumn colours. The river and ravines were also dramatic. This was an easy 2 hour hike to the finsih and back. Great for a day trip from Nikko!

We caught the train to Ryuokyo station, where you exit, cross the road and pass between the yakiniku vendors to begin the walk down to the first waterfall, about 5 minutes. The span bridge is currently blocked at one end, probably landslide, so you can't...More

The entrance to the canyon is a small path in between a ramen and souvenir shop across the train station. We would have missed it if not for the lady from the ramen shop who spontaneously gave us a map of the hiking trail and...More

Get off of the train here and hike the loop trail to get great views of the Kinugawa River and a series of waterfalls gracefully dropping into the canyon. The trail is well maintained and well marked. I would rate it to be of medium...More

Ryokyo Canyon is just a short train ride from Kinugawa Onsen station. A very sleepy town and the few stations that dot along the way are very deserted. The canyon is located across the street from the Ryuokyo train stop. The steps are steep in...More
