Spectacular river front scenery and amazing rock formations.

Ena Valley is located in the eastern part of Gifu and stretches from Oi Dam on the Kiso River to the upper reaches of the Nakatsu River. The valley has sharp cliffs with many unusually shaped stones and rocks that were created by erosion. “Kasa Iwa (umbrella rock)” is a rare rock formation that looks as if it is piercing the ground and has been designated as a natural monument. “Beni Iwa (red rock),” is covered entirely by a reddish brown moss and is another special rock that represents the valley. Ena Valley is also popular for its scenery. The surrounding cherry trees, azalea, and autumn leaves heighten the beauty of the river valley. Ena Valley can also be enjoyed from the sightseeing boats on the river.

To the south of Ena Valley runs the Nakasendo (a historic roadway that once connected Tokyo and Kyoto). Visitors can experience life along this historic roadway with a trip to the former posting town of Magome-juku.
