Enchanting visitors with its stark and seasonal beauty, Kiyotsu Gorge is considered one of Japan's three most beautiful gorges and one of the most picturesque areas in the country. In most years, the leaves of area trees start turning red and gold in late October, and during this time you can enjoy stunning fall foliage. The contrast between the steep cliffs walls, clear stream waters, and autumn foliage is nothing less than stunning.
