Do you know Sandankyo Gorge ?
Sandankyo is an 11.5km long ravine in northwestern Hiroshima that runs along the Shibaki River.
After about one hour of walking, we arrived at the place where we can take a boat.
But unfortunately, since it was raining in the morning, the boat was not being operated!!!
Before we left there, we had lunch near the gate.
We talked a lot with a woman who works at the restaurant and she gave us a lot of information about Sandankyo.
We will visit there next spring again and take the boat!!
