Iya, a 10 km scenic gorge created by Iya River, is regarded as one the the Top Three Untrodden Land in Japan. The v-shaped gorge is deep, and because of heavy rainfall, the trees grow thickly. The area near Shonben-iwa Rock where the famous statue of peeing boy is erected is about 200 m from the bottom of the gorge, creating a dizzying landscape.
