Sandankyo Gorge三段峡

Event

This long, deep gorge along the Shibaki River has been designated a national special place of scenic beauty. The peak of the fall foliage season is from the end of October to the beginning of November when the view of red and yellow Japanese maples and konara oaks above the sheer cliffs is superb. There's a path along the river so you can take in the amazing scenery to your heart's content as you stroll along.

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.
