Genbikei Gorge厳美渓

Event

A gorge along the Iwai River, which originates in Mt. Kurikoma and flows down to Ichinoseki City in Iwate Prefecture. Waterfalls, curious rock formations, and huge boulders create dynamic scenery along the two kilometer length of the gorge, and Genbikei Gorge is renowned for its seasonal beauty. In most years, the trees around the gorge begin turning their fall colors from mid-October, ultimately dying the entire area in a carpet of red and gold. The contrast between the colorful foliage and the clear river waters is stunning.

          Iwate Main Areas

          around-area-map

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
