Takachiho is in Miyazaki Prefecure in Kyushu, Japan. There isn’t too much to do, but there is a lot of nature. Getting there isn’t exactly easy. If you can drive in Japan, I recommend renting a car but if you can’t check out the Japan Reference site for directions. There are a few places sightseeing spots, but the one worth checking out is Takachiho-kyo Gorge.
The gorge is nice because you can get a nice view from above, walking along it or as you can see from the photo, you can rent a row boat…for a hefty price, I think it was about 2000 yen for 30 minutes! Despite the price, if you go on a weekend or a holiday and do not get there early you WILL have to wait, possibly for a while. I went at the end of summer, but wish I went during the fall as I am sure it is fabulous.
