Kanmangafuchi is a gorge created by the erosion of granite at Mt. Nantai by the rapid waters of Daiya River. Hyaku Jizo (Hundred Jizos) stand here. The tea house which stood at the foot of the swirling waters was lost along with some of the Narabi Jizo and Oya Jizo in the flood of 1902. People of the tea house bring tea.
