Index

    This gorge roughly in the centre of Shōdoshima is one of Japan’s three most beautiful. It was formed by erosion and crustal movement of rocks formed through volcanic activity over 13 million years ago, creating superb scenery of towering cliffs and strangely shaped rocks. The gorge bears a different expression in each season, with fresh green in spring, deep green in summer, red leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. The view out over the Seto Inland Sea from the cable car is amazing. You can also encounter many plants and animals if you take the footpath. There’s an observation platform and restaurant at the mountain top.
