Famous waterfalls that run fiercely down the steep cliff faces into the river, such as Aoi Falls, appear one after another on the boat ride down.
Surrounded by fissures, this bell-shaped rock seems as if it could fall into the river any minute. It is said that when the rock falls this world will come to an end.
The tour guide may even give a performance on the boat, like playing the traditional Japanese shinobue flute.
