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.
