Trace the paths of the gods and travel to one of the most beautiful scenic spots in Kyushu, the Takachiho Gorge. The natural wonder was formed from a natural phenomenon by the Aso volcanos when sudden cooling led to spectacular cliffs that rise between 80 to 100 meters above the river. Some of the region's most sacred and mythical locations can be found around the gorge such as Takachicho Shrine, an 1800 year old shrine home to a grove of evergreen trees which can claim an impressive 800 years. One of the best ways to view the gorge is by boat – come face to face with the 17 meter Manai Falls on your half hour paddle.
