九酔渓 Kyuusui-kei Kyusui Ravine

Jp En

Kyusui Ravine is a beauty spot located near the town of Kokonoe in Kusu County, Oita Prefecture.

The ravine is at the junction of the Kusu and Naruko rivers, which run by the head of Ida Plateau. Kyusui Ravine is a V-shaped valley and rises about 200m on either side. The valley is covered with trees such as fir, hemlock fir and maple.

Kyusui Ravine is famous as one of the most beautiful spots in Kyushu for red leaves, and also for its many waterfalls. Shindo Waterfall, in particular, was designated as one of Japan's 100 major waterfalls.

The wider area of the ravine is known as Naruko Valley and Kyusui is sometimes regarded as part of Naruko. Along with Ida Plateau, the area is included in the Aso Kuju National Park, so there are many tourists. Roads in this area tend to wind about in the so-called '13 bends', so there are usually lines of traffic during the popular visiting season.

In addition, Kyusui Ravine has Tengu Waterfall and cliffs, which make for superb views.
