Yufugawa Gorge  (Oita Prefecture, Japan)

Yufugawa is a river emerging at Mount Tsurumi that runs down to the valley floor, passing between this mountain and Mount Yufu. Over time, the river water has eroded the volcanic rock of these two volcanoes to form high gorges of fascinating beauty.

Yufugawa Gorge is 12 km long and heights between 15 and 50m. There are about 40 waterfalls and a hundred rivulets sliding on the rock to reach the river.
