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.

“ Hiroshima Day Tour ”

I organised this tour on behalf of a teenager who is fascinated with the Yamato battleship so this tour had to be very customised and Kashima-San lived up to the challenge! The boy really enjoyed himself. The guide spoke good English, very polite and respectful and he was flexible with the schedule. In fact the family said that they would highly recommend Kashima-San to others who visits Hiroshima!

KASHIMA:

I-Lin san, Thank you very much for your great and utmost review for me. It was great time for me to support your mother and your family for Hiroshima tour. We visited Yamato-museum where we could see the models (1/10) of Battleship named “Yamato” and lots of other ships and actual objects of submarine & airplane “Zero fighter plane”. There are many historical background explanations, photos and actual objects & ship models exhibited which are historically very important ones manufactured before and during World War2. Also, we visited Atomic bomb dome and Peace memorial museum. I am pleased that we could enjoyed a lot. Specially, your mother's young boy is so clever and has lots of knowledge about Yamato and related Japanese history. I am so much impressive for him. He has so strong c... read more

“ A day at Miyajima/Hiroshima ”

Kashima-san organized the timing of the trip very well. Even there were situation where stayed longer than, he did an effort to change the timing of Shinkansen tickets and didn’t try to rush us. He well explained to us history of places we visit and patiently responded to all our questions.

“ Great guide ”

Had a great day with Kashima - our itinerary and the numbers in our group changed several times and he was so accommodating and nice about it. We saw the highlights we wanted and some great places we didn’t know about!

KASHIMA:

Hollie san, Thank you very much for your warm and utmost review for me. Our original tour plan was one day tour on Oct.12 for Hakone & Yokohama. However, unfortunately, the biggest typhoon named 19th hit Japan in Kanto area from Oct.11 to Oct.12. Under this circumstance, you and your friends were kindly flexible to see the storm situation by communication with me and we could set the alternate tour on Oct.13 by making several alternate tour options prepared. In the end, we could enjoy Tokyo tour visiting Imperial palace, Zojoji, Tokyo tower, Harajuku, Omotesando and Shinjuku Golden Gai with beer drinking as final enjoyment under sunny weather on the day. I am very much pleased that you and your friends could enjoy the tour even under this unexpected situation. During the tour, we coul... read more

“ Engaged but not enough knowledge ”

Kashima tried his best to show us through Nikko, but we expected much more knowledge in one of the most interesting places in Japan. The information he gave us, we already had when preparing the trip. From a guide we also expected better knowledge in English.

KASHIMA:

Michael san, Thank you very much for your helpful review for me and selecting me as a guide for your precious Nikko tour. We visited Toshogu shrine, Akechidaira, Lake-Chuzenji and Kegon-waterfall. Unfortunately, due to cloudy whether, we could not take Ropeway in Akechidaira to view the landscape and we could not see clear view of Kegon-waterfall near Lake-Chuzenji. You had ever come to Japan decades years ago and this trip in Japan is your 3rd one. . I am pleased to hear from you that you know well Japan and love Japan ncluding Nikko. Also, I am amazed that you will have your own tour through Japan with your family by renting a car after this tour . I felt that you kindly educated me by this review so that I can become more professional guide capable to explain much more deep informat... read more

“ Very good and thorough guide ”

Totally competent caring for our group. Got us through the day with ease. English was frequently difficult to understand, though. Very good skills getting us through all our train and bus changes. Did not, though, keep us together through the Himeji castle, nor give us any education while inside.

KASHIMA:

Bob san, Thank you very much for your utmost and helpful review for me and selecting me as a guide for your Himeji & Kobe tour. I am pleased that I could support your, your wife and your group of 8 people from your cruise ship members. All your members are so active to learn about Japanese history, culture and daily life. I could communicate a lot with all your members. Also, I am pleased that you kindly pointed out my inperfected points. I will improve my explanation skill about each spots information by English with more slowly and accurate so that everyone can easy understand. As for the explanation inside Himeji castle, I am sorry that I could not explain there. I will improve how to explain to large members during climbing up to 7 stories castle with jammed situation.
