Gorge and Autumn Leaves Makes the Best Couple along the Arakawa River!

Route 113 from Takanosu hot springs in Sekikawamura in Niigata Prefecture to Akashibakyo gorge, Ogunicho in Yamagata Prefecture, is ideal for driving. Gorges along the clear Arakawa River and trains on the Yonesaka Line passing a railway bridge backed by autumn leaves are so beautiful and photogenic for you to naturally take pictures.

Visitors can explore an Arakawakyo gorge area by a promenade while having a break on the benches along the way.

Because Takanosu hot springs are facing the Arakawa River, those who head to the spa resort must pass the suspension bridge, which adds a thrilling experience.
