Soya Gorge is up the Iwamigawa River. Among the cliffs that look like folding screens you can see spectacular sights of mountain cherry blossoms in the spring, fresh greenery in the summer, and autumnal colors in the fall. Up river is Funoshi-no-taki Waterfall, a scenic shot that is iconic of Okuzashiki.

Akita Main Areas
Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
