This hinterlands valley is around 8 kilometers from the famous cherry-blossom viewing area, Sakura-Sanri, along National Route 11. Come experience the mysteries of nature in this valley and see the Namera, a river bed made from one large spacious rock that stretches almost a kilometer in length, as well as potholes formed by smaller stones caught in the whirlpools cutting into the larger boulders. A popular spot in the spring when the new verdant green leaves emerge and during the summer as a cool place to escape the heat. With amazing autumn colors in the fall and icicles stretching longer than two meters in the winter, there's something to enjoy here year-round. This valley with its mysterious rockface formed over countless years has certainly earned its reputation as a secluded natural power spot (spiritual place with energy vortex).
