About Kanmangafuchi Abyss, Nikko

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

  • Interesting place but wouldn't go there if it gets dark.

  • It's a 25-30 min walk from Toshogu Temple. Keep walking along the river and you will get there. Peaceful environment and beautiful scenery. Stone statutes are impressive.

  • While it's quite a nice spot for a good picture most pictures you will find online are kinda misleading. The bridge is right next to a main road! It's not in the middle of a forest, park, etc. You have to pay to step onto the bridge and there's a closed gate on one end so you can enter and leave the bridge only one one side. Don't get me wrong - it's a beautiful bridge. But nothing more

  • A hidden gem that does not get the attention it deserves. A short easy walk but has magnificent views.

  • Stunning. Just stunning. One of the best spots in Japan!
