Great Stuff to See and Do!
The scenery is a must-see in person, beyond the photos
The Oboke Ravine was formed with the continuous erosion of the craggy mountains caused by the rapids of the Yoshino River. The famous scenic spot, where you can see the beauty of the valley where marble statues seem to tower above, has been designated as a natural monument of Tokushima Prefecture.
Refresh yourself while drifting along the river amidst the grandeur of nature
If you go on the pleasure cruise, you can enjoy an up-close view of the sculptural beauty of the mesmerizing rocks in the steep V-shaped Oboke Ravine. The spring cherry blossoms and the autumn leaves add color to the surface of the clear water, allowing you to leisurely enjoy the ravine’s majestic beauty aboard the boat.
