"Tastes of JAPAN by ANA" is a regional vitalization project that collaborates with the different prefectures in Japan to present the Land of the Rising Sun in all of its diverse glory.
Fujigawachi Valley is a beautiful spot hidden in Ume, a secluded village in Saiki, Oita.
Situated in the Sobo-Katamuki Quasi-National Park, the valley receives water from Mount Natsuki (a 1,386-meter-high mountain) that sits on the border of Oita and Miyazaki. The valley starts at Kannon Falls and extends some eight kilometers.
A work of art created by nature
The valley showcases the beautiful scenery of the changing seasons and also offers an extraordinary view of the Kuwahara River cutting through a huge granite slab. The sight gives the impression that nature used the river as a tool to sculpt the slab little by little over a long time to create this masterpiece.
Try canyoning and explore nature!
A canyoning tour is offered during the summer season (from mid-June to late September). You can enjoy the valley while jumping down rocks, sliding, climbing, and immersing yourself in this magnificent landscape. Join the tour to see and experience the various sides of this valley's natural beauty.
