Takachihokyo Gorge is a beautiful 7 km long gorge in Miyazaki Prefecture that was created by a volcanic eruption. It is a designated natural monument and is known as a sacred place and power spot. One of the highlights of the gorge is the Manai waterfall which is considered one of the 100 most beautiful waterfalls in Japan. A great way to explore the gorge is by boat which you can rent. You can also take a ride on a Takachiho Railway track for tourists, known as “Super Cart”. The stunning scenery to be enjoyed here is a feast for photographers and nature lovers.
