We drove down, it was a rainy day but fun trip. The place is beautiful, we walked around and took pictures with the pretty scenery. We rode on the boats at the bottom of the gorge, $20 for 30 mins.

Was driving from Beppu (2.5 hour away) to Kagoshima (a further 3.5 hours) and dropped by TG as a pit stop for lunch and visit. We chose this over Mount Aso (which we have not been) but it was certainly worth the while. It is a small touristy little place which one can walk across in about an hour. I... More

It was a nice place, not too many people during winter. Rowing the boat was fun. There was also a few restaurants around. Overall a nice place for a half-day trip.

It cost 2000 yen to boat for 30 mins, but can get most spectacular pictures of valley with columnar rock and 17 meter Manai falls. Roaming to the Gorge need 20 min from Takachiho bus station and electric assisted bicycle is not necessary and too hard. The way to Takachiho gorge also can approach the Takachiho shrine with Takachiho kagura... More

This is miniature compared to Grand Canyon but the surrounding is relatively scenic. Enjoy a walk nearby. If you don't drive, you may study how to come here. Free entrance but only a few picture spot. Major attraction in Kyushu.

It's breathtaking Despite the crowd during our visit we felt calm and enjoyed the views and the sounds of nature. The kids and friends enjoyed the drive and it seems magical once we arrived. Refreshments are aplenty and the souvenir shop retails lovely unique local merchandise for the food addicts

Bad time to visit. It wasn't raining in the area but the rains from the upper mountains caused a lot of landslide closing some major roads/routes to get there. With the rain from the mountains, it has caused a high tide at the gorge where the locals closed down the boat operation. Nevertheless, we took a lot of pictures from... More

Well, it's indeed a long journey from Miyazaki (self-drive). Take about two an half hour to reach Takachiho Gorge (approx 137km). Me and my family never expect much of the waterfall as we seen the picture beforehand. BUT BUT....... until when we start to take a boat ride and row ourself, it is an AWESOME scenery altogether! We spent half... More

I was looking forward to walking the gorge and also perhaps the takachiho olle trail, but the trail was closed due to heavy rain. Will definitely have to make the trip back in drier climate.
