Comfortable walk in this gorgeous place with cute bridges across the river. If your timing is right and not raining, etc, you may enjoy having coffee and desserts at the riverside little open cafe as well.

Nice & pleasant walk. Though with quite a few steps here and there it is not suitable for those who have mobility problems. Nice break from the little onsen village of Yamanaka. Good viewpoint at the second bridge.

You must go here. It is a short walk in a circle but you are feeling as if nature made the place. Interesting shops in the area too

Easy access from Yamanaka-onsen, calm and fresh air! Beautiful bridges and cafe on the river is a great place in summer. 山中温泉ってこんなに素敵なところがあったんですね。渓流沿いに約1時間の散策はとてもさわやかです。
