Kaneyama is a mountainous, rural area of Aizu. It is made up of a number of small villages, which when combined together can be classified as a town or 町 in Japanese. This is slightly misleading, however, as there is no central 'town' within Kaneyama. Many of Kaneyama's villages are scattered alongside the Tadami River. Due to the natural resources of Kaneyama there are many hot springs.

Kaneyama is noted for its spectacular scenery.
