“Gei-bi-kei” is ravine along with “Satetsu river”, which is located in Iwate prefecture.
Though this word is not used normally in Japan, “Gei-bi” means the nose of lion because the stalactite located at the exit of ravine resembles lion’s nose. The length of this Japanese nature spot is 2 km. You can see the cascading fall and usually shaped rocks by the river. A boating trip is the best way to enjoy great view of “Gei-bi-kei”.
Why don’t you go down a river with you hearing the Japanese traditional song sung by a boatman.
