Geibikei Gorge and Yugendo Cave Exploration

Geibikei Gorge and Yugendo Cave Exploration

Enjoy a boat trip along the serene river before exploring an ancient cave

Not to be confused with Genbikei Gorge, this gorge has sheer cliff walls and trees lining the river. Different coloured leaves for each of the seasons make this a great excursion throughout the year. Enjoy a boat ride through the gorge to admire the dramatic but peaceful scenery.

Near the gorge lies Yugendo Cave. It is one of the oldest limestone caves in Japan, and features many different fossils. The cave was once underwater which accounts for it's narrow walkways and rich history of fauna. There is an exhibition hall where you can learn about it's history and creation.
