Geibi Gorge runs along the Satetsu River in Ichinoseki City, and was Iwate prefecture’s first officially designated Place of Scenic Beauty. Its main attraction is the limestone cliff walls rising more than 50 meters. Boating downstream through the river forks between those towering walls is one of Geibi’s true pleasures. There are also many unusual rock formations and caves as well, and the fall colors or spring wisteria offer lovely seasonal beauty. Summer and the fall leaf season also see boat-top tea parties in special tea boats, and in winter you can enjoy a hotpot at a heated kotatsu table as you watch the snowy landscape passing by.

Iwate Main Areas
A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
