Route & Fares
The return trip up and down the river, guided by a boatman or woman, takes about 90 minutes. At the turnaround point, about 20 minutes is allowed for walking a little further into the gorge, and throwing “undama” to make a wish. On the return journey, you can enjoy the boatman or woman singing “Geibi Oiwake”.
A giant cliff 124 meters high, located at the furthest part of Geibi Gorge.
There are 10 undama: destiny, longevity, fortune, connections, wishes, romance, love, bonds, income, and assets. You can buy five for 100 yen.
It’s said you’ll get good luck if the undama you throw goes in the hole.
Sofu-gan Rock & Shofu-gan Rock
These giant rocks face each other from opposite sides of the Satetsu River, resembling a married couple.
Shishigahana (Lion's Snout)
This strangely-shaped rock looks like a lion's snout, and is the source of Geibikei Gorge's name.
