Irohazaka Route, Nikko

3.7
#18 of 181 in Things to do in Nikko
Travel the spectacular and winding ribbon of Irohazaka Route, which carves its snaking path up and down the mountainous landscape. With a total of 48 hairpins, it's not a drive for the faint of heart--but if you enjoy a bit of a challenge, you'll witness spectacular views across the valley, with observational points along the way. Scenic any time of year, the hills prove particularly memorable from October to early November, as the surrounding trees take on rusty tones.

  • If i went to The time zone of about arriving at Lake Chuzenji at 8 a.m. asa, I was able to climb Irohazaka without any traffic jams. There was no traffic jam because it came down at about 11 o'clock. There is a spot where the autumn leaves look beautiful in Achikochi at the time of the, and I stopped the car many times and took a picture.

  • I went to Oku-Nikko for a two-night, three-day autumn leaves tour. Irohazaka, there is certainly a good fall foliage spot depending on the point, but there is a considerable spirit only in one-way and large traffic jams.
