Designated by the Ministry of Education as a scenic spot, the natural park "Rurikei" is a 500 meter high and approximately 4 km long ravine with a spring deep in its mountain land. Heading towards the upstream source "Lake Tsuten-ko" are spots known as the "12 scenic spots in Rurikei," including "Meibaku," "Soryuen," and "Gyokusoban," waterfalls and cliffs with names designed to reflect their nature. The beautiful highland scenery that changes for each season is even called "the Karuizawa of Kansai," and it enchants visitors.
