Rock formations seen from a boat going down Hozu River. Greenery and small flowers grow between the rocks. Huge boulders lie along both sides of the river. Hozu Gorge, also called Arashi Gorge, is a 13km stretch from around Hozu Bridge in Kameoka to 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.
