Visitors to this 10 kilometer valley can see 100 meter cliffs formed by the Nakatsugawa River. A primeval forest continues for as far as the eyes can see. The picturesque yellows and reds of the leaves during autumn are so breath-taking that it has been designated as a prestigious scenic spot of Okuchichibu. Lots of people come here during the “Okuchichibu Otaki Autumn Leaves Festival”, which takes place every year from October 24 – November 24. The lush greens in summer and the azalea flowers in spring are also worth seeing.
