Good to go. Beautiful and Wonderful nature . Clear water with fresh air. No matter long drive and some difficult drive way. Recommend to drive there . It’s hard if you will take public transportation to reach there.

Love the fresh air and landscapes here, nice short walk in the nature! Good venue for geography lovers. If you go at weekend, you may have to park your car a bit far away from the gorge.

Went here on a sunny day, so we were lucky to be able to go into the gorge with the kayak. The kayak experience was very nice and took around 1 hour. We came here before 12 so there wasn't a queue. After lunch, we...More

When we arrived in our rental car, there is a guard signalling to us to move on further up as the main carpark seems to be full. We eventually parked the car at the Takachiko Shrine carpark and walk back down to the gorge... it...More

There is a certain air of mysticism which reverberates through Takachiho Gorge, one of Japan's oldest and most storied power spots. Also reverberating: the sound of hapless paddles hitting other equally hapless paddles. Take your pictures, soak in the gorgeous natural scenery, and try not...More

The sun is out today. We did some canoeing 🛶 at this gorgeous gorge. It has countless waterfalls cascading into it. I wish I can do more justice to these pictures.

After a debate, we decided to visit this gorge. It took us over 2.5hr driving in mountain roads and finally arrived at the gorge. The parking lot was very small and costs ¥500. We were disappointed on how small the gorge was and probably deceived...More
