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!

It's a little out-of-the-way and mostly visited by foreign tourists (the kind that doesn't travel in tour groups). Nothing much here other than Jizo statues and views of the river, so you can save yourself the walk. There are other places to see rivers and waterfalls.
A very scenic place with a good view of nature, quiet and mesmerizing
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.
Please do not use drones here, it is super annoying. That said, we had a lovely time otherwise.
