Geibikei Gorge

Sitting just outside Hiraizumi in Iwate Prefecture, is a peaceful lush foilage flanked gorge with calm waters and incredible views that transform with the passing seasons. Not to be confused with the nearby Genbikei Gorge, Geibikei Gorge is also home to Geibikei Gorge Boat Trip, a 90 minute cruise that allows visitors to really enjoy the landscape; fiery red in fall, creeping wisteria blossoms in May and crisp, clear skies in winter, it seems there’s no bad time of year in Iwate. If you’re worried about the cold winter days, don’t, because many of the cruise boats also serve Kinagashi Nabe, a hearty hot pot, miso soup based dish of meat, tofu, and other seasonal ingredients.
