about 1/2 hour train ride from Chichibu where you may find some differences in experience and sights. Beautiful seashore along the river while you take a raft ride along the shores, be prepare to get some wet if no good protection.

Pretty, nothing spectacular. Combine this with a trip to the top Hodosan to make an excursion to Nagatoro worth the effort.
