Kanmangafuchi Abyss

Kanmangafuchi Abyss Kanmangafuchi Abyss Kanmangafuchi Abyss

Once when Mt. Nantaisan erupted, it spewed lava into the Daiyagawa River, creating a beautiful and mysterious abyss of black lava, called the Kanmangafuchi Gorge. The path leading to the gorge is known for its row of about 70 stone ‘Jizo’ statues, which legend says changes every time you count them. In addition, visitors can see the Sanskrit characters believed to be carved by Saint Kobo Daishi.
