Along with Yabakei Gorge in Oita Prefecture and Geibikei Gorge in Iwate Prefecture, Sagakei Gorge is counted as one of Japan’s three great gorges. The gorge spans 2km from Murohama to Kayanosaki on the peninsula jutting out from the southernmost tip of Miyato-jima. The 20-40m sea cliffs, eroded by the surging waves and weather over a long period of time, are truly a mystery of nature. In contrast to the feminine grace of Matsushima Bay, Sagakei Gorge's masculine continuous rough and wild scenery inevitably stirs a sense of adventure. There are two ways of fully enjoying the true charm of Sagakei Gorge. The first is to stroll along the walking course established by Ohama; the second is by pleasure boat, on which you can view the scenery from the sea. Each offers a different flavor of the area, allowing you to enjoy the superb scenery of Sagakei Gorge.
