鎌滝の甌穴(貴志川)

リストマーク・花丸(Kishigawa) Kamataki Kettle Hole

  • Free of charge
  • 073-489-5910 (Kimino Town General Affairs Division)

A kettle hole (oketsu) is a round hole carved over tens of thousands of hours into the bottom of a river by eddying river currents carrying stones and sand.
Because the town of Kimino comprises the former towns of Nogami and Misato, there are two places called Kamataki (with different kanji), and both have kettle holes. The positioning of the Kamataki Kettle Hole in Kishigawa makes it a little difficult to see, but the one in Makunigawa can be seen from the road. There is no parking nearby, so please be considerate of your surroundings when visiting.

釜滝の甌穴(真国川)

リストマーク・花丸(Makunigawa) Kamataki Kettle Hole

  • Free of charge
  • 073-489-5910 (Kimino Town General Affairs Division)

The name of this area, Kamataki, comes from "kettle" (kama) for the kettle hole and "waterfall" (taki) for the water that flows into the hole.
Daishi Kobo was so moved by the mystery of the kettle hole that he built Kamataki Yakushi Kongo Temple on this land. While visiting the hole, come see this temple, born out of this natural work of art and the feelings of wonder toward it. There is no parking nearby, so please be considerate of your surroundings when visiting.
