Nihon(Japan) Canyon

Please do not compare this site with Grand Canyon in Arizona, US!  It is said that Mr.Kishi who was an explorer said "oh, it's a baby canyon!" and since then, this place is called "Nihon Canyon".  Some people might be disappointed due to the "baby" size but  Miocene white tuff shaped like pillar in the mountain is worth looking for geo lovers.  You can go the base of the tuff.  When I was there, I bumped into a Japanese serow

To go to the base, follow the pathway from a small bridge where is south-west of the Nihon Canyon in the map below. There is a small parking lot north side of the small bridge.  (2017.July)
