Genbikei Gorge (厳美渓)

Event

Located in Genbi Town, Ichinoseki City, Iwate Prefecture, visitors to the area can enjoy the beautiful and dynamic scenery of a gorge formed via erosion by the swift current of the Iwai River. The area is also famous for its Yoshino cherries and Edo-higanzakura cherries, which blossom in spring. An ancient double weeping rosebud cherry, said to have been planted in the area by the historic figure Date Masamune himself, is known as the Teizan-zakura. The best time for viewing cherry blossoms in the area is from late April to early May, and during this time some 200 cherry trees growing along both sides of a two kilometer stretch of the gorge, creating a lovely sight contrasting with the emerald green of the gorge’s river and its barren rock walls. Each year during this time a great number of tourists come to see the blossoms. Toilets, shops and parking available.

          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.
