The stream of clear water in Katashina-valley go down to the land space broken between the earth and crashed into white splash. Oigamionsen can heal your fatigue of the walking tour of Fukiwarinotaki by bathing onsen and seeing the calm and spacious view.

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.

Thanks to strong curiosity of your group about not only Japanese historey and culture but also Japanese everyday affairs, we could make precious information excahnge a lot.

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.
