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.

“ So much knowledge ”

Our tour with Kashima was excellent. He was extremely well prepared with printed facts on so many areas of interest, and was able to inform us of a lot of background information that might otherwise have been missed. He was also very accommodating with our food requests and found a wonderful Okonumiaki resturant in Dotonbory street, a stunning area of countless food venues. I can thoroughly recommend Kashima as a guid and great value for your money invested

KASHIMA:

Lindsay san, Thank you very much for your great and utmost review for me. I am very much pleased that you selected me as a tour guide for your precious tour in Osaka. I was impressed that you, your wife and your friends have strong curiosity about Japanese culture, history , sports, both old-fashioned & modernized atmosphere with various architecture and various Japanese common information. We visited Osaka castle where one of the most important Japanese history background exists, Dotonbori food street where lots of flashy signboards at each food restaurants are inviting you by "drinking and eating luxuriously until you will be financially broken." And Umeda Sky building which used to be registered as one of top 20 excellent architecture by a famous England book maker. It was good that yo... read more

“ Fast to come up with itinerary but not attentive enough ”

Kashima san was very fast in responding with a one-day Tokyo itinerary and adjusted it twice before we agreed and paid. Prior to the tour, I had conveyed specifically that there will be 2 persons who are about 80 years old but Kashima san had to be reminded him several times to slow down his pace. It was rather hot in the day and Kashima san could have been more attentive to the elderly folks to make sure they were doing alright. On the whole, we did not think Kashima san did a bad job but we could certainly do with more proactive sharing of information on Tokyo on Kashima san’s part instead of me asking him questions all the time! Cheers,

KASHIMA:

Wee san, Thank you very much for your honest and helpful review for me and selecting me as a guide for you precious tour. During the mail communication with you before the tour starting, I was informed that two elderly people of your family will accompany with you. Therefore, we decided to make a tour plan in Tokyo by three spots of Sensouji Temple, Tokyo cruise & Hamarikyu and East garden in Imperial palace by taking ample rest time each between the spots for a full day tour. I am very much sorry that I could not enough to watch and care your father and mother so that they can walk more slowly and be relaxed to visit each site. And I should find more better places for your parents to take ample rest. I shared the information of Japanese history, religion and culture for each spots to y... read more

“ Tokyo attractions ”

Kashima, thank you for your guiding over the four days last week. We caused you some inconvenience when we forced a change of plans on you but you were able to handle the new priorities brilliantly. We wish you the very best for the future. Best regards, Trish and Ed

KASHIMA:

Ed san, Thank you very much for your great review for me and selecting me as a guide for you precious tour. You requested me as a guide for four days tour guiding separated by one days in between. You preferred to visit the tour sites where you can go without spending long transportation movement and not into noisy crowded spots. I am pleased that you and your wife asked me to include very interesting sites that are not a crowded but feel us traditional Japanese atmosphere such as Omiya Bonsai museum & Bonsai village and experience of Toden riding from Waseda to Otsuka station that is a tram only survived here in Tokyo. Also, we visited Zojoji temple, Tokyo tower, Ueno Toshogu shrine, Tokyo cruise, Hamarikyu garden, Edo museum in Ryogoku, Samurai museum, Tokyo National museum and Omote... read more

“ Personalized & perfect tour ”

Kashima was an outstanding guide who listened to what we wanted to see and then he delivered on each part! In addition to our scheduled tour Kashima delivered us to Swallow stadium to see the Giants/Swallows Baseball game, helped us purchase a unplanned third person’s ticket so that they could sit as close as possible to our pre-purchased tickets. The trip to the Sumo wrestlers training stable was fantastic! Kashima followed that up with Sumo Museum that let us know how well connected to the most important Sumo Stable in Tokyo we had just visited! Kashima not only did everything he promised but more. Kashima exceeded our expectations! Highly recommend. Kelly & Steve

KASHIMA:
