Vine bridges in the Iya valley
The vine bridge（Kazura bridge) is located in Iya, a hidden valley that holds the sad story of the Heike Clan. The bridge's graceful shape, reflected in the clear waters of the Iya River, creates a beautiful landscape in harmony with nature throughout the four seasons. The bridge, once the only transportation facility in the deep mountain valley area, has been designated as a National Important Tangible Folk Cultural Property and is now a popular tourist attraction.The bridge is made of Japanese white birch, weighing approximately 6 tons, and is 45 meters long, 2 meters wide, and 14 meters above the water, making it a thrilling sight as it creaks and sways with each step.
Oboke Gorge Pleasure Cruise ~Feel the time of eternity~
The majestic flow of the Yoshino River, which runs through Tokushima Prefecture from west to east, has created beautiful gorges in the valley. The V-shaped valley of the Oboke Gorge, with its steep slopes and rock walls approaching from both banks, has been known as a difficult place to pass through. The rocks on both banks of the Oboke Gorge are said to have been created 200 to 100 million years ago. While listening to the boatman's guide, the boat will take you on an 8-kilometer tour of the canyon, where you can enjoy the magnificent scenery and the mystery of nature.
