Where to Explore


Takachiho shrine   

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



Takachiho Gorge 

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.




Amano Iwato shrine 

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.




Tourist TramMinami Aso Rail Way

Enjoy the magnificent scenery of Aso. The Minami Aso railway is a private railroad offering a

very scenic ride from Takamori to Nakamatsu in the south east of the caldera.

Lovely and magnificent scenery can be enjoyed.
