Ryuokyo gorge is located about 3 km north of
Kinugawa hot spring
In Japanese, it is pronounced as "Ryuuookyoo".
It has been formed by erosion of Kinu River for a long period of time.
Both riversides are steep rocky cliffs, and there are several strange rocks and waterfalls.
The length of the gorge is about 4 km, and it is located right between Ryuokyo station and Kawaji-onsen station on Yagan Railway Line.
There are some walking trails along the gorge.
"Ryuokyo" means "gorge of king of dragon".
It looks like the trace that a dragon had raged here.
From Kinugawa-onsen, about 15 minutes by train of Yagan Railway.
