Ena Gorge is a scenic area whose man-made lake was originally formed because of the construction of a dam downriver. It is a river valley where, in the spring, cherry blossoms bloom in full force and, in the fall, the cliffs blaze red and yellow with autumn leaves. Enjoying this scenery with the added feature of mysteriously shaped rocks dotting the area is particularly fulfilling from a cruise boat, which takes you around the lake for 30 minutes of incredible sightseeing.
One of the best places around Ena Gorge is the hot spring bath from where you can enjoy a fabulous view of the valley. Soaking in the bath in the early evening is highly recommended, as one can watch the setting sun in all of its glory. The Ena area is also famous for chestnuts and, therefore, for the Japanese sweet called kurikinton, a delicacy made from chestnuts that you simply must try!
