Near the town of Takachiho in Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan, we can found Takachiho Gorge, a stunning natural landscape that combines four elements of great beauty: a river of clear water, huge cliffs, waterfalls and lush vegetation.
This gorge was created by Gokase-gawa River and it has a walk of 600 meters long, flanked by cherry trees and several traditional Japanese flowers and trees. The idillic waterfall can be seen from the walk, falling from 17 meters high and we can approach it by boat.
