A canyoning adventure in a quasi-national park in Kyushu

Oita Prefectural Tourism Association "Tourism Oita"



Fujigawachi Valley, located in Oita Prefecture’s Sobo-Katamuki Quasi-National Park, has a varied route of rushing waterfalls, emerald-green pools, caves, potholes, streams and giant granite monoliths. Like a naturally formed theme park, it’s a stunning setting for outdoor activities and adventure tourism.

Shaped by the cascading water from the Kannon Falls, the 8 km valley offers spectacular views of the Kuwahara River as it cuts through local forests. A popular destination for trekking and hiking throughout the year, it also offers secluded spots for summer swimming.

For the more energetic visitors, from May to October, Fujigawachi Valley becomes home to a number of exciting canyoning tours. With so many pools, waterslides, potholes and rocky terrain, canyoners can enjoy climbing, rappelling, jumping, sliding and swimming under the guidance of a local canyoning guide. No special skills are needed, with kids over the age of 10 welcome to join.
