Kaochi-dani Valley, located in the upstream of the Shorenji-gawa River, was created by the volcanic activity of Muro volcanic cluster.
The valley with columnar jointing rocks stretches 8 kilometers from Kaochi-bashi Bridge to Ochiai Bus Stop.
On the steep rock cliffs, you can see some oddly-shaped rocks called Kimen-iwa rock, Byobu-iwa rock, Tengu-Hashira-iwa rock, and Kotaro-iwa rock.
The valley is also famous for its Kerrias and Azaleas in the spring and crimson leaves in the fall.
