Takachiho Gorge, Takachiho-cho
(4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Towering walls of basalt accented by several waterfalls awe visitors at Takachiho Gorge, a chasm formed by the waters of the Gokase River. At more than 120,000 years old, the gorge winds its way through the dense forests carpeting the surrounding landscape. You can make use of the 1 km (0.6 mi) paved walking trail that tracks the edge of the canyon, offering views down to the river below and passing several historic shrines along the way. Alternatively, rent a rowboat to explore from atop the water. Enclosed by imposing cliffs that reach as high as 100 m (328 ft) in places, you'll pass by streaming cascades like the Manai Waterfall, which drops from a height of 17 m (56 ft).

  • 自駕由宮崎前往高千穗峽,超過一個半小時的車程,我們是上了有料高速,已比較快了,估計使用無料道路可能要用上兩小時吧,但其實白天並沒有很堵車,可考慮無料路線,但回去時,千穗之家手信店的一個店員看到我們四點多還未離開,便勸我們最好早點回去,因為下班公路堵車,估計到達宮崎最快也得花三至四小時,我們最後是上了有料高速,完全沒堵車問題,不過那可是挺貴的,二千三百多日圓單程回去呢!說說高千穗峽,的確得有趣,拍照...  more »
  • We visited on a tour of the travel agency. A mysterious Valley descends the stairs and rocks eroded and made in will appear. Sun light falling from the sky and waterfalls splash was making a fantastic space. As soon as I realized that the Moon God, and seeing photos of red, pink, yellow and green light quite brilliantly, as Halo fell as is. I was impressed.

  • Parking was available front of Takachiho bridge bridge parking lot (free). Amazing beauty to go down into the Canyon we have to walk the Boardwalk made of lava can be seen. Here look over photos and on TV, but the picture than actually, you should have experience with all five senses! So I went in the morning to avoid the crowds is the light was often right. It is spectacular especially on the boat, view from the bottom. Rowing back from the photo, real name wells falls and I can take back onto the bridge and fantastic images. Despite off-season weekday day boat so users are not careful and bumps. It may be stuck during the peak time during the season.
