About Ryuokyo Canyon, Nikko

The Nikko region’s most significant valley, the Ryuokyo Valley is this mighty enchanting gulch flanked by the Kawaji Onsen and Kinugawa Onsen spa zones. No less of a magic, this canyon is a sight of changing water colors, where you will witness the waters going from azure to white to even green! Resembling an outrageous dragon, the stream’s constant color change gives it another name of “Valley of the Dragon King".

Another very striking fact about the Ryuokyo Canyon that it emerged 22 million years ago! You can get the most of this gorge, gallivanting around the river, especially at the Ryuo-kyo Natural Trail. One of the quietest places in Nikko, this is not only Nikko’s but the entire Japan’s must-see attraction.
