Genbi-kei, Ichinoseki

4.0
Hike along a ravine, then put some money in a reeling basket to order tea and sweet rice dumplings from across a rocky river gorge at Genbi-kei. Beguiling with its elegance and size, the ravine throbs with huge amounts of rushing water. Cross a vertiginous suspension bridge and reach an inn famous for its steamed buns, serving as a good pit stop and an attraction in its own right. The area provides excellent views of eroded rock and swirling water. Worth an hour-long detour if you are already in the area, the gorge can be easily accessed by bus from a nearby temple built into a cliff.

  • The suspension until March stranded, sorry. Side of the Valley of the Shire, as was a rope. Cherry tree is out on the road.

  • Spectacular rocks hit up splashing water flow. Dyed emerald green water at moderate flow, you can enjoy the magical landscapes.

  • "Fallen" and was already on the net, so made do not expect too much, but still the red color was fine. Fallen red carpet I turned. It was quite a thrill to peer at the Gorge.
