Wakayama, Mie, located upstream of the Kitayama Kumano River water that flows across a three-prefecture of Nara “Dorokyo”. From the upstream, Okudoro, Kamidoro, is called under Toro, especially Shimodoro called “Dorohatcho” is, massive rock, rock formations, from overwhelming valley beauty cliff continues, has been praised as the scenic spot. That to blend in scenery of “Dorohatcho” situated on top of the cliff, you can dine while watching the superb view is “Doro Hotel”.
Mysterious superb view contrast of rough rock and gentle river weave
This is a cafe there is a lot of amazing places, but (correctly is like a dining room, cafe. Here you referred to as a cafe), first is this strange scenery. Huge rock was the rugged, cliff, such as those taken hollowed out by giants, against the violent nature of beauty, of the river that flows downright quiet thing. Deep emerald green, like a river that flows through the majestic European mountains of, and have seen mind is calm. “Doro Hotel” is built on cliffs on the river from about 15m, but how about you thanks to the flow of the river, did not think even looked down at the bottom and strange as “scary”.
Wakayama and Mie Prefecture, in front of the eye
It will also be surprised by this location. Address of this “Doro hotel” the main building is the Nara Prefecture. Suspension bridge I think that can be seen, but a few years before the typhoon of flood damage, is that so the bridge is broken. There in just across the bridge it annexes, but this is the Wakayama Prefecture. And, cliff on the opposite across the great river from the main building, is this Mie Prefecture.
Because this place is a place that has been said to be beautiful, especially scenery among the canyon, just maybe, a result the three provinces has claimed the territory, get along might have come to share. It is a great relationship if that was the case.
