Takachiho Gorge

Takachiho Gorge, the 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. 
There are two perspectives from which to enjoy the gorge.

The first is from below which is done by rowing down the river.

Rental boats are available at the south end of the gorge, and

the water is calm and easy to navigate.

This highly recommended route offers a close up view of the cliffs and waterfall. 

The second perspective, from above, is done by walking the paved path that

runs along the edge of the gorge. 
There are beautiful views all along the way and at some points on the trail you

can look practically straight down to the river below.
