Onouchi Valley originates from Mt. Ryokami of Chichibu's mountain range. Visitors can bask in the calmness of the waterfall's minus ions and enjoy the local dish, "patate," made from baked mashed potato. From early January to early March, visitors can catch a glimpse of one of the three major icicles in the Chichibu Road at its peak, the "Onouchi Hundred Views Ice Pillar." It is a huge ice pillar built by the locals; it is lighted up for a limited time for a more spectacular view. It is a breathtaking sight that has been featured on television shows and magazine articles, and many people come to visit.
