This valley was formed by erosion of the surrounding cliffs by the Natori River. It stretches about one kilometer up and down, with the Nozokibashi bridge in the middle. The contrast of tender green trees and autumn colors is delightful, and its unique rocks like Hakkeniwa Rock and Nariaisoko Rock are found throughout the area.
