Genbikei Gorge

Genbikei Gorge is a natural monument that can be found just outside of Chusonji with a remarkable beauty formed by the Iwai River from Mt. Kurikoma. The immaculately clear river of Genbikei is lined with rough boulders and cherry blossom trees that bloom in the spring, verdant azaleas in the summer, and stunning fall foliage. With charming scenery during all four seasons, Genbikei can be visited with a different view any time of the year.
