Soyo Gorge蘇陽峡

Valley

"A gorge situated along the upper reaches of the Gokase River. This gorge is famous for its ""U"" shape, a rarity in Japan. The gorge's precipitous walls, carved out via erosion, are some 200 meters tall and extend across a 10 kilometer stretch of the river. If you visit the Cape Nagasakibana Observatory and look down on the gorge, you can take in a view of the Gokase River weaving its way through the gorge bottom as well as the seasonal scenery of the so-called ""Grand Canyon of Kyushu."" Particularly from late October to early November, the area's fall foliage is stunning. The Soyo Gorge fall foliage festival, usually held in mid-November, is quite popular."

この道で大丈夫かなと不安になるような道をひたすらまっすぐ。やっと到着と思ったら、落葉!残念!綺麗な紅葉は望めませんでしたが、景色はよかった。

ドライブのときに立ち寄って見ました。グランドキャニオンと呼ばれているそうですが、言い過ぎだとは思いますが、景色はとても良かったです。次は紅葉の時季にいきたいです。

          Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
