This gorge, located at the upper end of Aizu River that runs through the center of Tanabe City is dotted with magnificent and unusually shaped boulders. It is well loved for its beautiful foliage in the autumn, and its fresh green foliage in the spring. The famous Waterfall of Akagi, (where the Fudo deity is enshrined), and the cliffs far above the falls where Magai Buddha is engraved is a sight to see.

Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
