Breathtaking views and amazing experience in Dorokyo gorge. Amazing boat trip in such a untouched nature. We even managed to see the baby wildboar and the snake. Definitely worth to visit!

Visiting Dorokyo gorge was great. Got to go on a boat ride through the gorge stopping at some spots to marvel at the rocks. The boatman was nice. Our guides Hanako & Kiwako would translate for us. Was there mid November but next time it will be during summer.

Every time I come here, I take a boat by Kawasemi-san. Boatman is so nice and stops the boat to touch the gorge or see the reflection. I love coming here to relax or just chill. I highly recommend visiting and take the Kawasemi boat.
