Jp En


Kenkofu-kyo Canyon is a beautiful scenic spot located near the region where the Ono and Notsu rivers join in Ono, Bungo, Oita Prefecture.

Kenkofu-kyo Canyon is also known as a place cherished by Tanomura Chikuden, a famous writer of the late-Edo period, and is said to have been named by Chikuden himself.

By the shores of the Kenkofu-kyo, the mountain scenery is like a Nanga (Southern Painting). Various large rocks such as the Senganga-iwa, Meoto-iwa and Sennin-ana, along with the varying colors of trees in the four seasons, illustrate a somewhat nostalgic, yet eloquent scene.

There is also a park where camping, canoeing and other outdoor activities may be enjoyed. Different canoeing meets are held at this place, from the National Athletic Meet to various other competitions.
