View looking downstream from a boat on Hozu River. The large riverbank on the left indicates that this is near Uketa Shrine. 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 between Mt. Atago and Oisaka.
