Kankakei is a gorge in Kagawa Prefecture’s Shodo Island. It is located in the heart of Setonaikai National Park.
The valley of Kankakei was formed over thousands of years as volcanic andesite and agglomerate were thrust upward via shifting of the earth’s mantle and eroded by rain and wind, creating a spectacular scene of sheer cliffs and rock formations.
It has been recognized as one of the Three Great Valleys of Beauty in Japan, one of the 100 Landscapes of Japan, as well as one of the “100 Natural Heritage Sites in Japan of the 21st Century.”
