  • This is a beautiful and easy hiking trail, accessible via an express bus from Hiroshima's bus station. There are different amenities such as a restaurant (good, but nothing exceptional) and restrooms....  more »
  • We went for a hike to see the waterfall and the beautiful scenery. We thought it would be an easy one but turns out not so. The walk has slopes and narrow paths, but the scenery is breathtaking.  more »
  • Many tourist spots in Japan are one of them in Hiroshima and the place is cool and the river water is clear

  • Sandankyo has become a secret and popular tourist destination from Europe in recent years, as a famous French travel agency has attached three-star🌟🌟🌟 stellars. It is a wonderful tourist spot where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the four seasons with fresh green in spring and autumn leaves in autumn, 🍁. From this Mizunashi parking lot, it takes about 1 hour (slowly 🐌💨💨) on a 1.6km journey to The Two-Stage Falls (Saruhi: There is a ferry stop) located in the northern part of Sandankyo. The ferry is by 3 o'clock, so you will need to leave the parking lot by 2 o'clock at the latest. In addition, it seems that the bear🐻 is infested recently, and it is best if there is a bell✨.
