New experience, going on boat, and guide was very kind explaining everything. Food lovers can opt for lunch and enjoy while riding the boat.

A historical and remarkable of an evocative scene created from jaw-dropping rocks during a boat cruise. Enjoying the quiet , natural environment along with the boat man singing traditional song, " Song of Geibi" The scenery of the nature view will change accordance to with the seasons. It is a place worth to visit.

Gorgeous to visit in all seasons. The boat keepers and punters are talkative and friendly, and they even sing for you! There is a shrine at the end of the gorge and a hole through which you can throw stones into. The stones each represent a wish or desire (love, wealth etc) and getting them into the home will supposedly grant your wish. Make sure you bring water with you if you’re going in summer like I did. There are also toilets at the end of the gorge.

visited geibekie gorge 猊鼻溪on 1.11.2023. we just caught the 11am boat ride ¥1800 1.5hrs but actually there were like a dozen returning boats when our boatman punt out nice gorge beautiful on its own even without peak autumn colours no no great rush you buy ¥50 feed & the ducks will follow you the whole journey (kind of😂) takes 30mins to reach the other side where you have 20mins to snap photos, feed big fat carps, find the lion’s nose rock 猊鼻… 猊is the 狻猊 like mystical lion in 龙生九子, the 5th son of dragon’s 9 sons. the boatman will sing their not Japanese old songs..some younger ones karaoke songs and some passengers audition for boatman vacancy 😎 I think very nice relaxing 1.5hrs well spent 😎

Very nice and relaxing experience! You are transported with a group of fellow visitors by the boat operators in a traditional boat steered using a long wooden branch. During the trip, the operator will tell you about the Gorge, and serenade you with a hauntingly beautiful Japanese song in the end. You will get more out of the trip if you understand Japanese, but regardless, I would recommend this trip!
