  • Geibi Gorge Boat Trip
    Travel / Tourism
    Iwate Prefecture Ichinoseki City Nagasaka cho 467
    The boarding site for the Geibikei Gorge Boat Trip is located in the city of Ichinoseki in Iwate Prefecture. The 90-minute trip allows you to enjoy the gorge fully and view the scenery that changes with the seasons, including wisteria blossoms in May and autumn leaves in the fall. In the winter, customers can make reservations to ride down the river in so-called kotatsu boats, in which guests sit at heated tables while eating Kinagashi Nabe, a hot pot dish of meat, tofu, and other ingredients cooked in miso broth.

Iwate Areas


A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
