This beautiful gorge runs through the mountains northwest of Hiroshima City. The lush greens of spring and the golden hues of the autumn leaves makes this a popular spot for ramblers and nature-lovers love to hike through Sandankyo, enjoying its refreshing greenery during summer and its autumn leaves in fall. There are some breathtaking waterfalls and crevasses in the gorge, including a famous two-tiered and three-tiered waterfall.

You can also board a ferryboat ride to cross over to Kurobuchiso, where you can enjoy local cuisine and Sarutobi - a narrow passage through the rocks to the two-tiered waterfall.

※The ferryboats run from the end of April to the end of November. The service stops during the rainy season and during bad weather.
