寒霞渓

  • Mountain View

Kankakei is a valley of 7 km long from the east to the west, 4 km long from the north to the south,

located in the central part of Shodoshima Island.

The cliffs and strangely-shaped rocks were formed by the rocks eroded by crustal movement

and by wind and rain repeatedly, accumulated by the volcanic activity 13 million years ago.

It is the splendid highlight even seen from the observatory.

Now

The autumn colors are now at their best.

 

Access and Getting Around

Though a cable car takes you to observatory, a one-hour trail from the top to the bottom is also pleasant.

By bus

15 minutes from Kusakabe Port to Ropeway Station at Kountei with 1 bus per 30 minutes.

By car

35 minutes from Tonosho Port; 35 minutes from Sakate Port.
