View of the rapids from a boat going down Hozu River. Stones are piled on the bottom of the river to break the current and allow boats to pass. Hozu Gorge, also called Arashi Gorge, is a 13km stretch from around Hozu Bridge in Kameoka to around Togetsu Bridge at Arashiyama. This is a scenic point where rapids and unusual rock formations can be enjoyed. Tributaries such as Kiyotaki River flow into the V-shaped gorge at an altitude of 400 meters.
