I stayed for two nights at the Hotel Iya Onsen, which is a short walk from the Peeing Boy statue and a short drive from the "Hi" or "J" gorge view. Beautiful scenery.

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

For entering or exiting the Iya Valley this is a much nicer way than via Oboke, so its worth going out of your way for it (it takes about 10 or 15 minutes longer from Ikeda to go this way instead of through Oboke). Be...More
