About this sight

Located in Daisetsuzan National Park, this range of gorges and the surrounding area is famous for its hotels and hot springs resorts as well as its autumn leaves, waterfalls and cliffs. Its name is derived from the Japanese words for layer, cloud, and gorge, and the origin of the name is "Souunbetsu", which means "the river with many waterfalls" in Ainu language, a language originally spoken in Hokkaido.
