Horikiri Pass (堀切峠)

A spot along the Nichinan Coast from which you can view the Devil’s Washboard (a Natural Monument) and the grandeur of the Pacific Ocean. The green of the phoenix trees and the blue of the ocean create a beautiful contrast in this picturesque expanse reminiscent of the south seas.

Review of Horikiri Pass

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2017/10/28 Great View
This roadside stop is a good way to gaze over the surrounding coastline. It is just across the road from the Phoenix roadhouse. Watch out for birds of prey soaring along the cliffs.
Reviewed:2014/11/30 A pleasant stop of point for views and a mango or some other weird icecream
View the weird rock formations (the washboards) and sample the local shopping in the road house. Sample your first mango ice cream if just arrived at this part of Japan or even shrimp icecream or one...
Reviewed:2014/02/03 A Geographic Treasure
A good site for viewing Aoshima on the left in far distance, and found the lines of eroded rocks extended further to the right on the coastline of Nichinan.
Little disappointed as I thought I could...

          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.
