Natural Monument of steep cliffs, a spectacular sight

Two spectacular sights in Ichinoseki are Geibikei to the east, and Genbikei to the west. Inspiration for the name Geibikei originates in the image of a Lion’s nose, Geibi in Japanese as scene in a rock formation through the gorge.

Discover Geibikei

Cruise in a Venetian-style flat-bottomed boat, serenaded with a traditional song using bamboo poles to push down the peaceful river to take in views of the rugged cliffs, waterfalls, and clear water and toss a luck stones into a cave.
Sample fish cooked at the entrance to the gorge or buy fish food to feed other fish in the Satetsu River. Geibikei was designated a Natural Monument in 1925 and is 2km long with sheer walls of rock reaching 50 to 100 meters on either side.
The emerald-green waters of the Iwai River have eroded volcanic rock to form Genbikei Gorge, 2km of smooth polished rocks in a rugged gorge.
Here try a novel way to get a snack, an order can be placed in a basket, then pull the rope to send it across the river. When the basket returns it will be filled with flying dango, rice dumplings with sweet bean, sesame or sweet soy sauce from the charming Kakko-ya café who delight taste buds since 1878.
