Enjoy the nature at his purest...clear water where you can admire ayu or sweet fish, an endemic fish of Japan. Let's get inspired by the folkloric song of the sailor man while admiring the cliff.

We took a boat in the morning around 11am, and the weather was really nice but a little bit chilly. We could totally forget the noisy and annoying life in Tokyo thanks to the wonderful view and the charming guide!

I recommend this destination... More

Do you sometimes wonder what a singing boat captain in traditional attire sailing the traditional way look like? Well you can experience this at the Geibi gorge while marveling at natures beauty; pristine clear waters, spectacular array of trees plus a treasure cave hmm
