Kanmangafuchi Abyss - Review

Another attraction which is an outcome Mount Nantai’s upsurge, makes it to Nikko’s must-see attractions.

A gorgeous gorge nested amidst central Nikko, captivates you as you leisurely take in Nikko’s orientation. 70 stone statues of red-bibbed Jizo lace the pathways of this attraction. Interestingly, the Jizo is a Bodhisattva overhauling the deceased! Also referred to as "Bake Jizo" literally translating to Ghost Jizo, Kanmangafuchi Abyss or even Nikko for that matter, doesn’t cease to amuse you! The Jizos overlook the Nikko botanical garden; however, you cannot enter these via this attraction.

This is indeed a tranquil walk through the woods, with the Daiya river flowing alongside. Great photo opportunity place!

Kanmangafuchi Abyss, Nikko Reviews

  • Hidden serene place. Beautiful blue river flowing. Not many tourist here and you can really enjoy your time here. Try to count the statue!

  • Great place! fresh air and the sound of water really perfect for relaxing your mind and body. The neighborhood is very quite and unique. different from the other place. no English explanation inside.

  • Great place to see the river and waterfalls. You will find stairs on the left that lead up to a burial ground and if you continue straight you will end up at a dam with no views so I don't reccomend continuing at that point.

  • A reasonably quiet area as most tourist on coaches will not come here.

  • If you go to Nikko you cannot miss this place, its only 20 min walk from the Shinkyo bridge along the water, calm with an amazing river with small blue natural pools and waterfall together with the Jizo statues. Must see!
