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.

KASHIMA:

Thank you very much for your warm and kind comments to me. I am very much pleased that you and your family and your business partner took a lot of effort to visit each tour spot under very hot whether condition and enjoyed a lot there even such a tough condition. 1st day of Kamakura tour, Tsuruoka-Hachiman Shrine, Kenchoji & Enkakuji of Zen temple, Great Buddha, Hase temple and Yuigahama sea side view watching. 2nd day of Hakone tour, you enjoyed Ropeway to see Hakone mountain and large cruise riding on lake-Ashi. Also, you visited Owakudani, Hakone Shrine and Goda park. Fortunately, in Hakone Shrine near Seaside Torii gate which is the best photo spot in Hakone, Annually Shinto ceremony had been held when we visited and you could experience a dignified ceremony and a young Shinto priest water skiing on the lake. 3rd day of Tokyo tour, you visited Asakusa and took riding on Tokyo cruise to Odaiba where you enjoyed various type of shopping and saw Liberty of freedom near Odaiba seaside. I heard from the people joined this tour that your country has same kind of religious ceremony and they Sincerely prayed their hope to Japan Shinto god according to the formal procedure. Thank you for understanding Japanese culture. I am looking forward to meeting with you again for your next trip to Japan. Thanks, Kashima

“ Everything was great ”

Everything was great

KASHIMA:

Raydoreonia san, Thank you very much for your great comments for me. I am very much pleased that you spent your precious time to come to Tokyo from your Staying hotel in Kyoto and selected me as a guide for your Tokyo half day tour with your returning back to Kyoto after the tour. We enjoyed the tour mainly for your cute young daughter shopping in Harajyuku and Omotesando. I am so impressive and pleased that you daughter enjoyed the shopping very much. Also we could have a very funny conversation each other. I am looking forward to meeting you and your family again for your next trip in Japan. Thanks, Kashima

“ Kashima san made this a special day! ”

Kashima san and I toured Kamakura and from beginning to the end he was the perfect guide. He was prepared for a great day - even printing out a notebook for me providing history and details about our sites which was very appreciated. He was also very fun with great since of humor —excellent company for a single tourist. Thank you for making this such a memorable day!

KASHIMA:

Steve san, Thank you very much for your kind and great comments for me. And I am very much appreciated that you took a little risk to go Kamakura tour under the condition of typhoon approaching to Kanto erea on the day. Fortunately, without heavy rain and wind condition, we could visit the target spots of Tsuruoka Hachiman shrine, Great Buddha, Hase temple, Hokokuji temple and good lunch on Komachi street. I think that you already got well knowledge of Shinto and Buddhism such as Nyorai, Kannon, Jizou, Zen Buddhism ,Samurai spirit and the difference between Shinto and Buddhism thanks to your strong curiosity. I am looking forward to receiving your next guide request again for you and your family. Thanks, Kashima

“ All around guide ”

We like Hideo San We see him again today

KASHIMA:

Allen san, Thank you very much for sending a grateful message and selecting me as a guide for your 5days tour with your family on Tokyo and Tokyo surroundings. I am very pleased to notice that this tour is mainly for you two cute granddaughters. On the first day of Tokyo tour, your kids enjoyed very much for Tsukiji, Ginza with lunch and Harajytuku, specially by roaming around Takeshita-street seeing various exhibits in the shops ,shopping and food tasting. I am surprised that you requested me to change an original itinerary to visit again to Takeshita-street and Harajyuku KAWAII monster café on the 4th day tour in Tokyo. I learned how young girls like those. On the second day of Kyoto one day tour, I appreciate that you and your family endured the Shinkansen time schedule trouble caused by a landslide due to heavy rain occurred near Kobe. However, I am pleased that you all enjoyed Shiraminejingu-shrine with rabbits as messengers, Nishiki-market to do sightseeing and shopping, Gion street and Fushimi inari shrine by using a Van service. Today, we will visit Kamakura and I hope you all will enjoy again. Thnks, Kashima

“ The best guide ever hired! ”

About Nikko----- Kashima took us to places that other guide won’t take us to. Such as doing Koyoto in one day or Nikko in one day. Kashima made it happen. We couldn’t stop talking about these places he took us too because of how much fun we had. And he made it easy. He had everything set up ahead of time everything right on time we felt stress free enjoying our time and creating memories. And not to mention his sense of humor he kept us laughing the whole time. He’s kind, caring full of energy. What a blast! We can’t wait to go back to Japan and hire Kashima again. The best of the best! Believe me u won’t regret it. About Kyoto----- You are very welcome Kashima u made my grad daughter so happy where she wants to go back to Japan and hire u again so u can take us to more fun places. I can’t thank u enough.

KASHIMA:

Rania san, Thank you' very much for your review for me and I feel honored very much. Thanks to your positive request of tour spots such as Akechidaira Ropeway, monkey gundan show, Edo wonderland in Nikko and red face monkey park in Kyoto, which I believe came from your very cute grand daughter, I could manage to support you for the excellent tour. I am very pleased and can not forget that your granddaughter excited too much for the each spots, specially Ropeway and playing with monkeys. Thanks to the tour with you, I have learned a lot for me to execute how to coordinate a tour better. I am looking forward to meeting you and your granddaughter again as your guide in Japan in near future. Thanks, Kashima
