(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Help other deities lure the sun goddess out of her cave and bring light back to the world at Amanoyasu Kawara. Following a pleasant 15-minute hike through the forest along a stream, you'll stumble upon stacks of stones, which serve as wish towers made by devotees and visitors paying tribute to the sun goddess. You can’t enter the cave, but can instead admire it from an observation deck. The cave is believed to have many spiritual powers and attracts crowds of visitors year-round. It can be reached via Amano Iwato Shrine, some 10 km (6 mi) from Takachino.

  • Went a bit warmer, but could walk comfortably. I think kids less interested participants were, I was done. I think it does not believe in God is not the God's descendant advent area, once a good visit.

  • This is the onset of mythical and mysterious atmosphere. I walk a little, but this atmosphere is so unique, so please stop by take a look at. One can not go, afraid. Stone piled up is quite like the new habits, origin myths associated with such a translation is not so.

  • A lot of stone the rest. Not say someone wish was. But difficult to collect stones. If you go in the summer so it seems nice.
