It's 2 gorgeous gorges offer views people can't stop raving about. A boat ride is also available to best enjoy the scenery. To not miss out on anything, I planned on visiting both the sites, but due to the strike of a sudden typhoon I ended up seeing neither ๐Ÿ˜ญ. Eventually I was only able to spend about 2 hours in Hiraizumi, so I did the only possible sensible thing. I hiked to Yoshitsune's Shrine. ๐Ÿ Geibikei Gorge ๐Ÿ Genbikei Gorge โ›ฉ๏ธ Chusonji Temple โ›ฉ๏ธ Motsuji Temple โ›ฉ๏ธ Behind the unpronounceable name of ๐—ง๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ผ lies a shrine dedicated to Yoshitsune Minamoto (one of the most famous warriors in Japanese history, for those of you wondering).
