The Niyodo River is a first-class river also called the miraculous clear stream from having the number one river-water purity in Japan. The river water is an outstanding clear blue, earning it the nickname Niyodo Blue. The new green leaves in spring and the autumn leaves are particularly beautiful, and many visitors come to see them. You can do various activities to enjoy the river, such as canoeing and camping, and you can experience making "tosawashi," a traditional Japanese paper made using the beautiful water.

The Niyodo River has bridges without balustrades built to withstand the flooding of the river. These are called Chinkabashi, unique to Kochi where rains falls frequently, and have become photo spots to see the peaceful landscape of Japan that is at one with nature.
