Takachiho-cho

(3.5/5 based on 2,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: nature, religious sites, sightseeing
The mountain town of Takachiho-cho remains a place of great importance to Japan's spiritual and natural heritage, and the point where these two things intersect. It seems clear during a trip to Takachiho-cho that those who visited during ancient times would have seen the dramatic landscape and begun to understand it in spiritual terms. Said to be the place where Amaterasu, the Shinto goddess of the sun, hid from the world in a cave before coming back out and bringing light to the world once more, Takachiho-cho possesses a number of important historical and religious sites, and a wealth of caves, gorges, and mountains.

Where to stay

Where the mountain roads all convene at Honmachi, the main accommodations of Takachiho-cho can be found. As with other important locations in Japanese mythology and spirituality, Takachiho-cho possesses a good mix of simple guesthouses for pilgrims and backpackers, as well as some upmarket options, including luxury hotels and traditional guesthouses with limited numbers of rooms and quintessentially Japanese decorations throughout. Follow each of the main roads out of town, and you'll find similar options in more isolated locations.
