The "Doro-kyo" Valley (Doro-haccho) 瀞峡(瀞八丁)

The unusually shaped rocks and the green water surface are the artwork created by nature.

The large valley is designated as Japan's Special Place of Scenic Beauty.
The serene beauty of the river water has been known from the old times, and visitors will be overwhelmed by the spectacular valley which preserves its prehistoric nature.
The vertical cliffs and the massive rocks are wild.
The color of the river is mysterious emerald green.
In autumn, the contrast with the red coloring of leaves is also magnificent.
