  • That is one cool guy!

  • Look at that beard!

  • That's amazing!

  • Three cameras on one ticket purchase

  • Today we're at Geibi Gorge in Iwate

  • It's supposed to be one of the most picturesque spots in Tohoku

  • And judging by the pictures I saw on Google

  • It does look quite good

  • Back in 1927 Japanese government came up with a list of a hundred iconic landscapes across Japan.

  • Today, I'm visiting Geibikei Gorge with Odigo Travel to find out why it made that list.

  • This is so cool!!

  • Yeah it is

  • Whose idea was this?

  • Chris

  • It was me

  • So subtle

  • How much was this? 14 dollars per person?

  • 16?

  • 16 dollars per person

  • And you can ride a boat for an hour

  • An hour!

  • And not just a boat we got hands!

  • A hand-boat

  • A hand-boat!

  • From this angle it looks like he's spearing Rachel's face

  • Got to throw some money in

  • 100 yen

  • Shit!!!

  • That was officially the closest I've ever been to a duck

  • Fantastic!

  • It's like something out of Lord of the Rings

  • Absolutely huge, this gorge, it's about 100 meters high...alright I just made that up

  • It looks about 100 meters high

  • And apparently we've got to throw some rocks into a hole in the gorge

  • I don't know what happens, apparently good luck

  • But, let's go and see

  • I don't know how I can actually do it

  • Alright guys what should we choose?

  • Oh these are really cute

  • There's one for love

  • Go on Sharla you can do it?

  • There's no way you can miss this

  • Oh no!!

  • That's really hard!!

  • So, five stones

  • One hole, let me show you how it's done

  • That was a test shot

  • Alright that was a second try

  • That was a practice

  • Come on come on come on!

  • Ooooh come on!!!

  • Oh come on!!!!

  • It was like..THAT close!

  • Gonna have to use special effects to make it look like I got it in

  • I'll use special effects or something

  • And then i'll say

  • "Oh I've got it in!"

  • "It went straight in the hole, it's amazing!"

  • "I can't believe it!"

  • "I can't believe I've got the rock in the hole"

  • "It was amazing"

  • Apparently last week there was a typhoon

  • It came around this area

  • And actually damaged the gorge so they're quickly trying to repair it

  • It's time like this I wish I'd been a digger operator

  • Looks bloody good fun

  • To say this is relaxing would be an understatement

  • It's so.....well apart from the digger, it's so calm

  • It's cool, you come out of Sendai

  • Drive out of a major city for an hour and bang your in a gorge!

  • Absolutely stunning, I'd go so far as to say it's gorgeous

  • Gorgeous..

  • It's a pun isn't it?

  • I feel like a changed man

  • That was a really pleasant journey

  • It felt like meditating or something

  • The singing, the smell of fresh water, the view... it was all rather pleasant

  • So Geibikei Gorge, I'd say it lives up to the reputation, it's absolutely stunning

  • If you're ever in Tohoku or Iwate, definitely come and check it out!

  • And right now, I'm pretty hungry, I'm gonna head off and...gorge on some cheese, so..

  • ..."Gorge"

  • Clever wasn't it?

  • It's a pun

  • "Gorge!"

  • Geibikei Gorge is absolutely stunning but if you can't make it all the way up to Tohoku

  • Japan has numerous gorges dotted throughout the country

  • You can find a full list of the gorges

  • In the Odigo article in the description box below
