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).

  • 原先計劃撐船,觀光社有免費的士接送,只要租船30分鐘,(2000yen)便可,但我們決定自行步行,結果到達高千穗峽時,發現沒有人撐船,可能天氣冷,當時約3-4度,我們當然沒有租,免得做model,景色優美,可能是淡季的原故,遊人不是太多。 最可惜是步道因維修封路。 
  • This was a tourist bus. Took about 2 hours and a half from the city center, for Takachiho Gorge to. Kagoshima has the same Takachiho, here is a street address. Amano iwato shrine, it is known as the land of miraculous faith. Gorges 谷chi became the great cliff of columnar joints once were during the eruption of ASO volcano, the famous. Takachiho gorge at the Kumamoto earthquake the other day, and in cracks in some places for the restoration in the middle of the process are forced to detour. However, it is a feeling of "cheers" when you arrived at your destination. You can also further under the row boat. If to contains the boat however takes quite some time, so a little longer to keep time. I think splendor of suspension bridge seen from below and the beauty of the Valley takes a closer look, this unique spectacle is not. In chosen as Japan shrine near the falls, spear fly bridge. Summer came even close to the myth in point where said that spot can feel enough Takachiho rikiishi island and tsukigata, OGRE 8, Takachiho Gorge walks alone. Seated under the stall and car rental, so effortlessly, are available.
