We came to see the Kawazu sakura festival and on the same day did this hike. It was very refreshing and not too hard to walk. Make sure you get off the bus at Mizutare so you do the trail downhill and not uphill.

I've lived in Japan for over two years and have been fortunate to visit many natural and cultural sites from Hokkaido down to Nara, but this is my favorite place. It's mostly paved with a few large stair and bridge sections following a beautiful stream/...More
