Mélange of Chichibu Kegon FallsGeosite 23
This is a beautiful waterfall with a fall of approximately 12m that flows on top of the hard red rock of Chichibu belt called chert.
Chert in this region broke apart into pieces when the oceanic plate slid underneath the ocean trench and then mixed with mudstone, resulting in something called a Mélange, which comprises part of a mixture of large blocks of rock.
