Chomonkyo Gorge is a scenic spot designated as a national scenic spot in 1923 and is a beautiful canyon along the Abu River that stretches from Hagi City to Yamaguchi City. Beautiful valleys such as strange rocks, waterfalls, and the abyss are impressive. The nature that changes with the seasons, such as wild cherry blossoms in spring, fresh green in summer, colored leaves in autumn, and snowy scenery in winter, heals the heart. Autumn leaves are especially famous, and the colorful autumn leaves dye the surface of the water red, and the valley changes to the most beautiful season of the year.
Town Map Pin No.1 is the recommended view spot. Also, if you walk a little upstream from the parking lot, you will find a sweetfish restaurant called Ryugu Chaya (Pin No. 2 on Town Map), which has been in business for 60 years. The surrounding area has a nice landscape, so it is recommended that you take a walk with reference to the Town Map. The scenery of the drive route along the Abu River and dam lake from Chomonkyo Gorge to Hagi is also wonderful.
