Western AreaRanzan Town
Ranzan Keikoku Gorge is a famous scenic spot in Saitama prefecture known for its stone pavement, clear stream of the Tsukikawa River, and a rich natural environment.
Especially in the area called Hosohara, which extends from Mt. Ohira, the river suddenly turns 180 degrees, creating a unique peninsula-like terrain. The beautiful scenery of the valley and the surrounding red pine forest is very similar to Arashiyama in Kyoto. This is also the reason for the name Ranzan which is another way to pronounce the kanji-signs for Arashiyama.
