Sandan-kyo Valley (三段峡)
The Sandan-kyo Valley is a long ravine in Akiota Town, Yamagata County, Hiroshima Prefecture, which cuts along the Shibaki River. It has been designated as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty. Visitors will be able to enjoy the magnificent scenery with some places resembling Japanese gardens or landscape paintings with the trees and waterfalls coloring the gorge and the emerald green of the water creating a spectacularly beautiful valley picture. Especially worth seeing are the so called five big sights comprising the Kuro-fuchi Pool, the Sarutobi, the Nidan-no taki and Sandan-no-taki (Two Step and Three Step Falls), and the Mitsutaki Falls. Sandan-kyo Valley is a place visited by many tourists especially during the autumn when the leaves are changing color. Visitors can enjoy walking along the promenade, taking a riverboat or even have a go at some kayaking.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
