Interesting rock formations line the Hozu River, seen from a boat. There's a fisherman on a rock to the left. Hozu Gorge, also called Arashi Gorge, is a 13km stretch from around Hozu Bridge in Kameoka to Togetsu Bridge in 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.
