The stream of clear water in Katashina-valley go down to the land space broken between the earth and crashed into white splash.

What to Expect

Fukiwarenotaki Fall called Niagara of Orient which is located inside Katashina-valley in Numata-city of Gunma whose width is 30 meter and the height is 7 meter. The path walking around this area is maintained well as ringed shaped that is surrounding the falls and we walk around the path with anticlockwise rotation. Total walking time is around 60-80 minutes based on the walking pace of each tourists. After entering from the entrance beside of the national road and going down along with slope of the valley, you at first see Masutobino taki-fall with 15 meter fall which is making rumbling sound and falling with big waving. After forwarding to walk, you can see the curious rock called Hannya mask rock (female demon’s mask) on the side of the valley. This Katashina valley is the treasury of fantastically shaped rocks and huge rock. The landscape created by nature is very much dynamic combined with autumn color of leaves now in fall on surrounded mountains, fantastic rocks and the calm flow of river changing to rapid & wild flow into the falls. You can see these landscape with 360 degrees. You will feel the rugged rock skin during walking up to the road path.
After a little climbing up, you will find the Fukiwarenotaki-fall. The stream of clear water is going down to the land space broken between the earth and is crashed with white splash. That show tremendous power. After passing over the fall, you can see Senjyojiki which spread widely with around 1,000 pces of Tatami-mat.
Then, going up to the slope on the walking path along with the east side of the valley, you will find the Ukibashi-bridge and by going through that, you will reach Ukishima-small island which is located inside the river. The view from the bridge is fantastic where you can see the Hannya-rock beyond the Senjyojiki.
After going through the Haiku path, you will reach three fall observatory spots at fairly high altitude from where you will see the large scale of dynamic fall flowing down with splashing as one whole landform.
After you finish sightseeing of Fukiwarenotaki, you take a lunch near the spot and move to Oigamionsen (hot spring) to heal your fatigue of the walking tour finished and to enjoy the traditional hot spring with the calm and spacious view. You can have a experience of day trip bath.
The spring quality of Oigamionsen is sulfur spring with alkaline and the effects is to heal the muscular pain, arthralgia and skin disease.
As described above, this one day trip tour of Fukiwarenotaki and Oigamionsen in Gunma is very much attractive.

“ Tiur on Nara ”

we had very nice tour with Kashima - he was prepared in excellent manner, all on time, and he has shared with us interesting stories on Nara. very entusiastic about his job.

KASHIMA:

Katarzyna san, Thank you very much for your warm and great comments to me. I am very much pleased that you enjoyed ancient atomosphere of Nara and could understand the excellence of Nara. There are spacious and graceful view with no modern building built on their surrounding such as Todaiji, Great Buddha, Kasuga-Taisha, Nara park, Toshoudaiji temple and Yakushiji temple where we visited. We enjoyed to talk with each other about not only the historical difference between Nara and Kyoto but also various topics for both Poland and Japan. I am looking forward to meeting with you again for your next trip in Japan. Thanks, Kashima

“ Hideo Kashima Review ”

Kashima was wonderful throughout a long day of touring. He was very knowledgeable about all sites visited. I highly recommend a tour led by Hideo.

KASHIMA:

James san, Thank you very much for your great comments for me. I am very much pleased and appreciated that you and your wife enjoyed the tour of Tokyo such as Tsukiji outer market, Tsukiji-Honganji, Namiyoke Inari Shrine, Imperial palace and the overview from the highest observation floor of both Tokyo tower and Skytree even if it was fairly hot on the day and we walked by fairly lots of steps. I was impressed that you and your wife were so interested in Japanese culture, history and beautiful landscape. I am looking forward to meeting again for your next visit in Japan. Thanks, Kashima

“ Great Guide ”

We spent an entire day with Kashima. As promised, he met us in our lobby at 830am. We had a busy day planned and he helped us navigate the subway and trains to get to six different areas throughout the city. He made us a dinner reservation and helped us find a great hole in the wall spot for lunch. He also purchased our transit passes in advance. Kashima was funny and has better than basic English speaking abilities. Although his pronunciation was difficult to understand at times, his understanding of our questions was fine. He was able to answer anything we asked. He also prepared us a tour packet in advance that we enjoyed, and he allowed us to make changes on the fly without question. I would use Kashima again.

KASHIMA:

Philips san, Thank you very much for your great comments for me. I am very much appreciated that you spent lots of effort to study Japan tour spots before you come here and made a very condensed tour plan including the best spots such as Asakusa/Sensoji temple, Tokyo tower, Imperial palace, Zojyoji temple, Meiji shrine, Takeshita-street and Shibuya crossing. The combination of ancient traditional atmosphere and that of the best modernized town was very nice to feel the excellent contrast. We enjoyed to talk with each other about not only Japanese history and culture for each spots but also various topics and comparison for both USA and Japan. I am looking forward to meeting with you again for your next trip in Japan. Thanks, Kashima

“ Amazing! Cannot imagine a better guide! ”

Had a great day trip to Kamakura! Kashima provided a detailed itinerary based on my wishes and was flexible and I changed and added some things. We had tea ceremony per my request in jomyoji temple, which I would highly recommend! Kashima met me promptly in my hotel and provided me with a printed and bound copy of our intinerary as well as pictures and detailed information about our day. He was flexible as I wanted to stop various places and shop. He was so friendly and helpful and I had the absolute best day! Highly recommend Kashima!

KASHIMA:

Rebecca san, Thank you very much for your kind review as great as any. And I appreciate you for taking a little risk to go Kamakura tour under the condition of typhoon approaching to Kanto area on the day. Fortunately, the whether was sunny in the morning and you could enjoy a tea ceremony experience in Jomyoji temple with very quiet circumstance without any tourists there. I think that you could feel deep feeling of Zen Buddhism related atmosphere combined with the dry landscape garden. I also very much enjoyed with you by lots of information exchanged each other and I could learn a lot by receiving lots of interesting questions from you. I am looking forward to meeting you again in future and getting lots of new questions from you. Thanks, Kashima

“ Three day Tokyo / Nikko tour ”

Great time with Kashima san. Excellent pre-trip planning, prompt, flexible, good suggestions. I can’t imagine a more efficient user of public transportation, we covered Tokyo as if we were in a private car —- only faster. In Nikko, when it rained, we modified our trip on the spot, so we could see everything we wanted. Oh, and there were nine of us he was keeping track of.

Thank you very much. I am looki... read more
