Amanoyasu Kawara, Takachiho-cho
(4.5/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • From Amano iwato shrine side road was located a 15-minute walk away. Overwhelmed when walking while listening to the sound of running water, the sound of the trees around the last curve, look in front of majestic and magnificent views. Guaranteed plenty of power.

  • I think you better come if you go up to rain rock shrine. If I went to Takachiho, I recommended.
