Takachiho Gorge

                                                                                                                                                       HOME 

 

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. 

 


 

Exploring Takachiho Gorge

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.
