It is a scenic gorge spot selected by the State, located in Iwate, north of Miyagi, 2km long x 50m deep, surrounded by strange shapes of limestone.
Tourists can take boats paddled by hands to go up and down the river with local folk songs sang by paddler.
You can enjoy young leaves or wisteria from spring to summer, red leaves in autumn, white snow and “Kotatsu Bune” foot warmed boat in winter time.
Please do not confuse with “Genbikei” which is different but similar named gorge in same Iwate.
80 min. drive from Hotel Kanyo, all seasons enjoyable.
