An enchanting natural park filled with moist valley beauty of water and green

The attraction of this natural park is the dynamic nature revealed at the unusually shaped rocks and waterfalls, and the gorgeousness of the valley created by the Toriharakawa River. As part of the much larger Aichi-Kogen Quasi-National Park (Aichi-Kogen Kokutei Koen), this spot allows visitors to fully enjoy each season, with the beautiful Sakura cherry blossoms in spring, cute fireflies swarms in early summer, paddling in the water in mid-summer and the tinted maple leaves in autumn. The park also contains the Seto-City portion of the Tokai Nature Trail (Tokai Shizen Hodo) and is a much sought-after destination for hikers and trekkers due to the countless sightseeing places along its way. Distant about 40min walking from Iwayado, you will find the Mt. Iwasu Observation Deck (Iwasusan Tenbodai), which offers spectacular views and, during clear days, even the buildings of downtown Nagoya-City can be spotted in the distance.

The Famous Illuminated "Koyo" Maple Leaves of Iwayado

Aichi-Kogen Quasi-National Park - Iwayado Park (Aichi-Kogen Kokutei Koen - Iwayado Koen)

Take a stroll along the serene course of Toriharakawa River while getting stunned by the gorgeously tinted trees arching above the trails during the popular Iwayado Maple Leaves Festival (Iwayado Momiji Matsuri). "Iwa" means "rock" in Japanese, fitting the name "Iwayado" that comes from the stone shrine housing three statues of the Buddha carved by the famous priest Gyoki during the Nara period. In the evenings during the artificial illumination light up events, besides the fantastic sights of the lit up autumn leaves, events with lanterns and others also entertain the guests.

Also Popular Among Families for River Play and Flower Watching
