Okazaki City Guide

Kaore Gorge

Kaore Gorge is a 0.5 km gorge along the Kaore Kaido road and the Otogawa River in the northern part of Sakuragata Town in Okazaki City. It is a very beautiful area where you can enjoy seasonal changes in the landscape including cherry blossoms in early spring, Koinobori (carp streamers) in May, soft green in summer and crimson foliage in Autumn.

During the Cheery blossom season, it is especially beautiful, as the entire gorge is colored pale pink by about 80 Somei Yoshino cherry trees. From April through May, about 200 carp streamers are set out over the upstream of the river.

In summer, the Gorge becomes popular amongst bathers wishing to make the most of the clear air and fresh spring water. The best hiking season is from the middle of November to early December, when the area is surrounded with beautiful autumn leaves.
