Tenokawa River at Tenkawamura


The quaint village of Tenkawamura in Nara’s Yoshino region is well known for its water; being home to the famous Dorrogawa “rumbling water” springs and Tenkawa Dai-Benzaiten, which enshrines the god of water. The river here is gentle, clear and snakes through the majestic Kii mountain range to provide swimmers with some of the best scenery in all of Japan.


From Abenobashi station (Tennoji), board a limited express train on the Kintetsu Yoshino line to Shimoichiguchi station and from there it’s one hour on a Nara Kotsu bus to Tenkawa Kawai.
