The Shimanto River

The Shimanto River holds many titles. Among them are "Top 3 Clearest Waters in Japan", "Top 100 Most Famous Bodies of Water", and "Top 100 Most Secluded Regions in Japan". This famous river has many tributaries. The clearest of which is the Kuroson River.
We'd like to introduce Kuroson Gorge, where you can have a great time while enjoying the crystal clear waters.
Quiet, picturesque scenery of the river, along with that special feeling you get seeing the sunlight poke through trees.

See the shrine by the clear, cobalt river reflecting giant rocks and over 500 year-old trees. Take in the songs of birds and the flowing river while strolling along a nature trail. You're sure to refresh your spirits here. (^^♪
