A bridge located just next to the Iwate Prefectural Citizens’ Forest, that looks out over the Matsukawa Gorge. From it, you can enjoy beautiful scenery no matter the season, draped over the gorge.
A short walk from the bridge can take you down to the gorge’s riverbed, where you’ll find the Genbu-Iwa crag wall, a powerful sight lined with jagged cracks. The mountain streams stretching from near Matsukawa Onsen shine a clear emerald, accenting well with the myriad trees growing out from the rock face’s cracks and gaps.
Each year, swarms of people arrive to experience its charm.
