Gembi Valley, Ichinoseki

3.9
Hike along a ravine, then put some money in a reeling basket to order tea and sweet rice dumplings from across a rocky river gorge at Gembi Valley. Beguiling with its elegance and size, the ravine throbs with huge amounts of rushing water. Cross a vertiginous suspension bridge and reach an inn famous for its steamed buns, serving as a good pit stop and an attraction in its own right. The area provides excellent views of eroded rock and swirling water. Worth an hour-long detour if you are already in the area, the gorge can be easily accessed by bus from a nearby temple built into a cliff.

  • Unfortunately, there was a yellow flag because I arrived in the evening, and it was a beautiful color though it was not able to eat. Because it was evening, i was about to close the stall, so I was able to buy yakisoba for 100 yen (laughs)

  • Because I had to go sideways from the main line, I almost passed, but it was worth just looking back from the top of the bridge, but the flow was immediately seen from the seat of the Toya style in the riverside, It is also interesting to take a basket from the other side of the river and send dango, it is recommended to walk a little.
