Located in the scenic heart of Nikko sits Kanmangafuchi Abyss, a site filled with as much sacred and spiritual importance as it has beauty. Like Lake Chuzenji, this stunning gorge was formed by an eruption of neighboring Mount Nantai. Stretching just a few hundred meters long through central Nikko, it's a pleasant riverside walking trail and a great way to explore the area’s untouched natural beauty. What makes this particular site of significant importance to the area is the fact this it’s home to a large collection of stone statues called Jizo, a spiritual icon who cares for the lost and deceased.
