Gunma Spring Adventure Trip

2020 April 26 (Sunday)

Gunma

Explore Gunma's hidden gems and sakura trees!

This Trip Features;

  • Fukiware Falls; Japan's version of Niagara Falls is 7 meters high and 30 meters wide with rapid stream gushing down from both sides and hitting the river bottom is a spectacular sight. Seen form the bedrock above them, the falls make a powerful impression. There's also a nice walking trail in and around the falls.
  • Takatsu Gorge; known as "Yabakei in Kanto region", this gorge holds a spectacular vista especially during the Spring when it is surrounded by fresh green leaves and azaleas.
  • Mt. Myogi; one of the three best scenic spots in Japan. The fantastically shaped rocks sculpt dramatic forms of natural beauty and offer various attractive landscapes. Mt. Myogisan can be viewed with pleasure from upclose or afar
  • Sakura No Sato; right at the southern foot of Mt. Myogi, there are 5,000 cherry blossom trees (45 kinds of them) to see and enjoy.

A Spring season adventure for all ages!
