Perfect short hike with dogs. There is quite a tall staircase near the beginning but it isn't too bad. The falls are very neat and weren't flowing too rapidly when I went in mid March. Going through the small cave is a bit slippery but worth it in the end. On the other side of the cave is a bigger waterfall and more stairs upward to take some good pictures. There were a few bugs by the water so bring bug spray.

Very good view of Ome the two look outs. Wish the city had a good public parking area though.

Small walk, though along a pretty river and easy to get to

Cool waterfall with the cave

This “trail” is just a road. It’s mostly paved, but dirt at the end. It’s flat. Think nature trail. Also, the end is a military recreation area, so unless you are U. S. (or sponsored) or Japanese military you shouldn’t even enter the end section.

Lovely views throughout the climb. Canopy provides nice shade for the warmer days. Some points can get pretty steep. Perfect balance between challenging and rewarding. Keep an eye out for boars and snakes!

We left our car at the train station and hiked from point to point. I didn’t start recording until one or 2 miles of walking to the city. The trail was beautiful in this late March and in great condition. There is a steep Rocky is sent that was free of snow. It took somewhere around three hours to get to the peak. Downhill was much faster after walking the Ridgeline. The Ridgeline was very enjoyable as well as seeing the views of Fugi on the ascent and the ridge. Snow was a delight at the peak! The hat was closed, but there were two vending machines. We grabbed cokes from one, decided to wait on the beer machine – Ha! We had a six and eight-year-old with us. We started at 11 AM and finished at 5:45. We stopped for a sugar break at the peak. So enjoyable! Enjoy!

Nice fall foliage walk — super easy. Stop in on the shops and cafes to meet some terrifically hospitable people.

Superb views! Easy to get to and very very beautiful! Some parts of the trails are rather narrow and the bridge youd have to cross is a bit run down but other than that super beautiful! Don't forget to study the map so you dont take a wrong turn or else youll end up somewhere completely else! Lots of views of mount fuji along the trail and the surrounding mountains!

My wife and I climbed Nikko Shirane-san. We took Nikko Shirane-san cable car and started hiking from the mountain station. It was a sunny Sunday during three day weekend, so it was very crowded. The fall colors have just started. When we got to the summit we were surrounded by clouds and didn't have any view. We were disappointed.

Easy trail for families. Walk through a cleared path to the Ikego Campgrounds where there are small cabins. You pass by some open fields, bamboo, water and old samurai gravesites. The whole thing takes about 20-30 minutes roundtrip and is flat. Great for kids and dogs allowed, but watch for snakes.

good place to walk. very flat. you can find some nice cafes along the path.

The scenery is beautiful, of course, especially during cherry blossom season or fall foliage, but it really is more of a stroll than anything else. The path is flat for the most part; the plus side is that it's almost barrier-free / wheelchair-friendly, the downside is that it can be VERY crowded.
