An approximately 2km-long ravine formed by the erosion of limestone by the Satetsu River. Steep cliffs of 100m in height tower on both sides of the ravine. The river flow is quiet and the captains of hand-rowed boats descending the river sing the song "Geibi Oiwake." The purple wisteria flowers blooming on the sides of the cliffs are one of the best sights of spring, especially the sight of the layers of drooping purple flower tufts on Fuji-iwa Rock which rises over the crystal clear water.
