Nabegataki Waterfall is a hidden tourist spot in Kumamoto prefecture, located just outside
Oguni town in Aso region.
One of the area’s more well-known waterfalls. Looking like a mini-Niagara.
Located on the northern side of Mount Aso
Widely known for its open-air baths, it is one of the best places to enjoy the atmosphere of
old town in Japan, where more than 20 Inns （Ryokan）and gift shops standing in a row
along the Tanoharu River, a headstream of the Chikugo River.
The perfect spot view the five peak of Mount Aso
Daikanbo literally means a big observatory peak.
The circumference of the Aso caldera is about 130 kilometers. From the observation site,
you can clearly see its conical shape.
A narrow chasm cut through the rock by the Gokase River. The nearly sheer cliffs lining the
gorge are made of slow forming volcanic basalt columns which resemble the scales of a dragon
where the stone twisted and flowed as it formed.
Located just west of the town center, is nestled in a grove of tall cedars. During the day the shrine’s
nondescript, unpainted buildings blend in naturally with the surrounding trees. In the evening,
you can enjoy the Yokagura Dance.
About ten kilometers outside of central Takachiho the Shrine was built near the cave where
Amaterasu is said to have hid herself away. The cave cannot be approached, however,
there is an observation deck behind the shrine’s main building.
