Dorokyo Gorge瀞峡


This massive gorge straddling the borders of Nara Prefecture, Mie Prefecture, and Wakayama Prefecture in Yoshino-Kumano National Park has been designated as a National Special Place of Scenic Beauty. The gorge is divided into two parts, Kamidoro and Shimodoro, at the upstream of the Kitayama River. The downmost part of Shimodoro, also known as Dorohaccho, has a particular majestic beauty thanks to the boulders and unusual rock formations that line it. The two-hour jet boat cruises (round-trip) are an especially popular attraction. Passengers can enjoy the deep and mystical cobalt blue water , its rugged sheer cliffs, and its magnificent boulders.

          Wakayama Areas


          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.
