Travel Guide - Yufugawa-keikoku Valley


Yufugawa-keikoku Valley stretches over 12 kilometers between Yufu and Beppu.
It was created by erosion of the Yufu-gawa River over the years.
The enchanting 15 to 60 meters deep valley offers magical scenery for visitors to enjoy, and especially the view from a suspension bridge over the stream in Saruwatari is magnificent.
