Takachiho Tours

Takachiho Tours

Takachiho is located in Miyazaki Prefecture and is known for the Takachiho Gorge, which has sheer cliffs that resemble dragon scales.

Within Miyazaki Prefecture is the town of Takachiho, one of the most famous and religious towns in Japan. Located in the city is the Takachiho Shrine, which is one of the most popular destinations for guests visiting the town. The town is known for the legend involving the sun goddess hiding herself in a cave. Takachiho Gorge is a beautiful ravine in which the Gokase River flows through. This place is known for its natural beauty and religious importance. The Takachiho Gorge features the scenic Manai-No-Taki Falls and is a popular tourist destination. Guests can view the gorge from renting a boat and rowing down the gorge itself. Another popular way to see the gorge is by walking along the trail above the cliffs to get a good view of the entire gorge.

The Amano Iwato Shrine, and is one of the most popular destinations for guests visiting the town. The town is known for the legend of the sun goddess hiding herself in a cave and thus taking the world’s sunlight with her. The Amano Iwato Shrine is near the cave where the sun goddess hid herself in the legend. It is said that the sunlight returned when one of the other gods performed a ridiculous dance which caused all the other gods to laugh. Out of curiosity, the sun goddess came out to see what all the commotion was about and thus brought back the light into the world. The Yokagura dance is a reenactment of the legend and is one of the most popular events to see to see at the Takachiho Shrine. The shortened version is performed every night at the Yokagura performance hall located near the main building. A short distance away from the Amano Iwato Shrine is the Amano Yasukawara Cave. There is a shrine located inside the cave where it is said that the gods and goddesses met to strategize on luring Amaterasu outside. The area can be identified by the numerous stack of stones lined up by the river.
