Hyuuga Gorge


A power spot for love! The red arch bridge is reflected on the water with the heart rock in the background.

Legend has it that the gods of Hyuga came here because of its beauty. The beautiful scenery is like a series of Chinese landscape paintings.
The gorge is lined with huge, powerful, and oddly shaped rocks, including the 10-meter-high "Front Rock," a huge rock wall named after Amaterasu, Susanoo, and Hyuga no Mikoto, as well as Kehogiwa, where a hole was made by a horse's hoof strike, and seven rocks named after the seven deities of good fortune.  
The view from the nearby red arch bridge, Kehogibashi, is a recommended viewing point. The giant rocks, which look like hearts, are popular among young people as a power spot for romance.
In spring, a thousand cherry trees bloom in a row around the Hyuukagami Dam, making it an ideal driving course.
