It is interesting and good for picture if you happen to drive past. But it is too simple and not worthy for an intentional visit out of your way.

Nice spot to take a photo, however as stated with other reviews the roads leading to this is narrow and need to pay extra attention to oncoming traffic. There is a very nice onsen hotel nearby this statue, so it would be a good idea...More

The valley is definitely scenic. Spare two nights in the valley in one of the onsen hotels so that we can visit most of the scenic spots.

The road is narrow, winding and uphill / downhill, to be shared by vehicles from both directions, so slow speed and extra care should be maintained at all times. The drive up to the spot was scenic and worth stopping whenever there was a safe...More

This is one of the least traveled places in Japan. You might think that you are instead in a remote Swiss mountaintop. We arranged in advance for a 5 hour taxi tour of the Iya Valley (with Iyakei Taxi - info@iya-taxi.jp - 23000Y). Our driver,...More

We drove out of Iya via the road through the Iya Gorge (Iyakei) and its much nicer than the road to/from Oboke. This old/original road into Iya has great views of the undisturbed valley, but the road is often one-laned and with lots of turns,...More
