The Maze River begin to flow from Mt. Ryugamine in next Kiyomi village. That river runs through to south in the middle of the Maze village, and it joins Ichinotani River from Mt. Kaore at Kawaue of the deepest the Maze village. And it joins Yugake River, Wara River in the lower part and last Hida River.

The Iwaya dam was constructed in the south of Maze village in 1976. But there had little impact for fishing area, because there was the lower part of Maze River. Even now Maze River is great fishing area of Amago, Iwana (Char) and Ayu (Sweet fish).
The Maze village is attractive for me that Maze River has light and varied stream, and so is hot spring in lower part Nishimura.
To access to the upper reaches of Mazegawa River became very easy now but the beautiful streams are still alive and well.
