Kakkonda Gorge

This is a 10-kilometer gorge in the upper reaches of the Kakkondagawa River, extending from Genbu Cave to Takinoue Hot Spring. Extending for 160 meters along the left bank of the river is a series of spike-like formations, 70 meters high, and Torigoe Falls drops 30 meters into a deep green pool from the rock face deep within the gorge. Extensive areas of various broad-leaf trees, especially old-growth beeches, grow in the river basin, and both the new spring greenery and the autumn colors of yellow birches and red maples are a lovely sight. The best time for seeing autumn leaves in most years is from early to mid-October.
