GUNMA Tourist Guide of Gunma Prefecture

Agatsuma Gorge

Spectacular scenery with unusually shaped rocks and waterfalls extends for about 3.5 km along both banks of Agatsuma River. The river weaves through this gorge, which is home to a beautiful deciduous forest. It is especially striking in mid-April when mitsuba-tsutsuji azaleas bloom, in May during the new greenery, and from late October through early November when autumnal leaves are at their best.
