Kakko-ya at Genbikei  

Updated: Apr 16


Overlook stunning Genbikei Gorge as you devour some delicious dango at Kakko-ya.

Autumn colours at kakkoya

'Flying dango' is one of the main attractions of Genbikei. Most people will order dango by requesting them at the base end of the gorge, but you can also access the same dango by walking up to the shop that sends them flying over! It is usually pretty quiet at the shop end, the perfect atmosphere for a relax and to take in the view.

Black Sesame flavour is my favourite if you can tell :P

There are three flavors of dango ↓

Koshian: red bean jam

Mitarashi: sweet soy

Kurogoma: black sesame (in comes in a paste form)

How to order dango at the gorge end: 1) put money into the basket (500yen) 2) knock on the wooden board 3) watch as your order gets hoisted up 4) wait for your order to 'fly' towards you.
