Takachiho Gorge

Takachiho Gorge is a beautiful narrow chasm that was formed by the Gokase River. You can find the gorge in the northern part of Miyazaki Prefecture within the center of the Kyushu Mountains.

Takachiho Gorge is located in the center of the Kyushu Mountains in the northern part of Miyazaki Prefecture. The narrow gorge was formed by the Gokase River out of the Aso lava. Through the erosion of the cooled lava, the sheer cliffs ended up looking like columns that resemble dragon scales. Along this beautiful gorge is a 600 meter walking trail that adorned with various flowers depending on the season. At the end of the trail you will end up at the Takachiho Shrine, which is in the city of Takachiho. It is said that it is most known for being the place of a famous myth involving Amaterasu, the sun goddess, hiding herself in a cave because of a cruel prank by her brother.

One of the attractions you can enjoy seeing is the 17 meter high Minainotaki Waterfall. The water cascades from the top and empties out into the Gokase River below, which is an amazing sight. Aside from taking the walking trail you can choose to rent a boat and row along the gentle river. It is an easy activity to try out since the river is calm to navigate through. After exploring the v shaped Takachiho Gorge, you can relax at a few restaurants and souvenir shops.
