Valley Spots in Miyazaki Area

  • Takachiho Gorge
    Travel / Tourism
    Miyazaki Pref. Nishiusukiguntakachihochou Mitai Please Shioi
    This gorge owes its roots to pyroclastic flow that was discharged from the Aso caldera due to volcanic activity and flowed down along the Gokasegawa River. These pyroclastic deposits rapidly cooled and formed cliffs of columnar joints, which then experienced years of erosion from the Gokasegawa River, resulting in a V-shaped gorge. The approximately 100-meter high cliffs extend for seven kilometers, and the sunlight that filters through the tall cliffs and various trees above pours down into the clear streams of the river to create a mysterious atmosphere. One of the sights in the area is Manai Falls, a magnificent waterfall with a 17-meter cascade of water which has been selected as one of Japan’s top 100 waterfalls. Visitors can rent a rowboat and look up at the beautiful gradation of light.

    Miyazaki Pref. Kobayashishi Higashikata Sannomiya Gorge
    "This gorge is in eastern Kobayashi City. It is one of the geosites of ""Kirishima Geopark."" It was formed by the pyroclastic flow of a huge eruption that occurred about 340,000 years ago, and you can enjoy magnificent natural sites such as ""Yagura no Todoro"" and ""Senjoiwa."" The promenade, which was once used as a a trolley road, is characterized by its 11 tunnels of different sizes, and it has been chosen as one of Japan's Promenade 100 Selections."

An unmissable highlight of Kyushu, Miyazaki prefecture satisfies nature lovers with its dramatic gorges cut out of rugged cliffs, leading into waterfalls and beaches of green-blue water popular among surfers. Takachiho Gorge in the north of the prefecture tells a tale of centuries-old Japanese mythology in a fantastic setting, allowing visitors to explore the waters by boat before heading up to the cave at the Awano Iwato Shrine, where the sun goddess was said to have hidden, plunging the world into darkness.
