Our Expert on This Area

Nakatsu Yabakei Tourism Associaiton

This special bus tour introduces visitors to the wonders of Yabakei Gorge, which is on the Japan Heritage List. The gorge is also designated as a Place of Scenic Beauty by the Japanese government. In fact, it is one of the new Three Great Views of Japan along with Onuma Pond in Hokkaido and the pine grove at Miho no Matsubara in Shizuoka. That’s quite a lot of accolades for one place!

Shin-Yabakei’s scenes include Hitome Hakkei. The name of this spot tells its own story. It means that a visitor can take in eight distinctive, scenic views from one vantage point. The other-worldly rocks take on the dazzlingly beautiful hues of new green leaves in spring. The Yabakei Gorge is well known as a great place to see fall colors but the Japanese maples are a vivid green in spring and are definitely worth seeing.

We can’t wait to show you the magic of Yabakei’s spring scenes.
