You can also check the course of the gorge on internet, but it doesn’t reflect the temporary area of no trespassing. So, please check the course at information course before you start walking the gorge.
There is a parking lot for 2 cars under Tozaki Bridge.
We parked our car and started walking.
It is pleasant to walk surrounded by beautiful nature.
After walking 50 meters, we found a water fall.
You can visit the waterfall with wheelchair or baby car.
You will feel cool if you visit the waterfall in summer.
We could not go further due to landslide, so we drived to another entry point of Kirishima Shinsui Gorge.
