A nice place to walk around but it's not super impressive nor picturesque. Boat rowing is not guaranteed as it's subject to weather conditions. We didn't get a chance due to high tide. Taroko Gorge in Hualien, Taiwan is more impressive. Worth a visit but...More

The gorge is beautiful. However, not easy to reach by public transportation, and not sure it's worth the hassle. Bpat ride is short, and the queue is LONG. If you get there early, you'll still have to wait at least 30 min. The later you...More

I don't believe you can make it. Too far from Tokyo and it is not worthwhile to make such a day trip from Tokyo. Drop this idea.
