Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kyushu / Miyazaki Prefecture / Nishiusuki-gun / Takachiho-cho / Takachiho Gorge
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).

Takachiho Gorge Reviews
柱状に固まった溶岩が侵食されてできた峡谷は、その独特な規則性を持った美しさで魅了する。 峡谷を流れ落ちる滝、川を遊覧することのできる手漕ぎボートはアトラクション性に富み、老若男女を問わずワクワクさせられる。ボートは30分1500円。よく整備された遊歩道は高齢者にも比較的優しい。 more »The canyon, which was eroded by lava hardened in a columnar shape, is fascinated by its unique regularbeauty. The waterfalls and river-going boats that flow down the canyon are full of attractions and are exciting for young and old. The boat is 1500 yen for 30 minutes. The well-maintained promenade is relatively friendly to the elderly.
国内にありながらなかなか行けない場所は数多くありますが、ここ高千穂峡もその最たるものでした。アクセス悪く辿り着くまで時間がかかりましたが来る価値があります。 ホントに素晴らしい場所です。 私はJRで宮崎→延岡、延岡からバスで高千穂バスターミナルに行きました。宮交バスの1日乗車券1800円で往復乗れましたが一部除外の便があるので要注意です。普通に乗車料金を支払うと片道だけで1900円位なので日帰りの... more »There are many places in Japan that are hard to go to, but this is the best of them. It took me a while to get to the poor access, but it's worth coming. It's a really great place. I went to Takachiho Bus Terminal by bus from Miyazaki to Nobeoka and Nobeoka by JR. I was able to get round trip for 1800 yen for a one-day ticket of miyako bus, but it is careful because there is a flight of some exclusions. Because it is about 1900 yen only one way when I usually pay the ride fee, the person of the day trip is sure to pass a one-day ticket by all means.
Beautiful valley and waterfall. Boat rentals are very affordable, and there has always been nearby parking available every time I've gone. Signage in English is very sparse, so be sure to Google the historical/religious significance of it as well!
Such a scenic place to see. It is totally worth to visit. Rowing a boat and a bit of hiking are so much fun. We went in winter, the weather is cold but the trees are still green. We all love it.
