Shosenkyo Gorge

御岳 昇仙峡

Officially recognised as one of the most beautiful gorges in Japan
Located north of Kofu city, Shosenkyo Gorge is said to be one of the most beautiful gorges in Japan. Visitors enjoy spectacular views of sheer cliff faces formed through thousands of years of erosion amid uniquely shaped rocks including one well-known example said to resemble a monkey.

The white cliff surfaces are particularly beautiful in contrast with the red and yellow leaves of the surrounding trees during autumn.
A well-maintained trail along the gorge offers serene views of the clear water flowing through the river valley along with a series of delightful highlights including beautiful dynamic waterfalls and a peaceful lake surrounded by green forests.

Shosenkyo Gorge is a 30-minute bus ride from the city centre of Kofu and a popular destination thanks to its majestic natural scenery.
