The Kano River rises from Mount Amagi in central Izu Peninsula and follows a generally northern path into Suruga Bay at Numazu. The Izu Peninsula is characterized by heavy rainfall, and the Kano River has a steep gradient with rapid flow and is prone to flooding. During a powerful typhoon in September 1958 (later designated the "Kanogawa Typhoon"), the river caused heavy damage to towns along its banks, resulting in 1269 deaths.
