46 Narukawa Gorge, a Stunning Ravine Throughout the Seasons

Pristine streams flowing from the Onigajo Mountains in Ashizuri Uwakai National Park have carved Narukawa Gorge, a beautiful river valley roughly 3km in length. The landscape can be enjoyed throughout the seasons at this gorge, where you can take in views of cherry blossoms and fresh greenery in spring, play in the ravine in summer, pluck red leaves in fall, and behold the snow in winter. Adjacent facilities are replete with accommodations, restaurants, and hot springs, letting you enjoy yourself the entire day.
