Like Matsuo Basho says in his poem, “Gathering the rains of May / How swiftly it flows / Mogami River,” Mogami River shows its own beautiful scenery throughout the year with cherry blossoms in spring, green leaves in the summer, colored leaves in autumn and snow in winter.

Nagatoro is at the entrance of Chichibu. Nagatoro River runs through a natural monument. The pile of rocks of Nagatoro and its wildness changes the scenery a lot.

Kuma River is one of the three fastest rivers in Japan. It flows gently through Hitoyoshi basin. Once it separates from the basin, however, it becomes a rapid that is worthy of being called one of the three fastest rivers.
