Takachiho Gorge is a beautiful natural wonder seems to me which basically is an important religious site. It is a top most tourist attraction of Japan and millions of Japanese pull towards you this gorgeous natural phenomenon every year. It is really a nice picturesque place with a stunning waterfall which is really eye catching but smaller in size than I was expecting it to be.
It was a great natural beautiful hike for me to the shrine and watching people going up and down was a great natural experience for me. We drove from kurkawa to Takachiho Gorge, that was about 1.5 hours long distance, but it was worth the effort and everything along the distance was picturesque. Reaching there was a stunning view welcomes us. There we took a boat ride under the small but amazingly refreshing waterfall. After the boat ride we enjoyed super delicious lunch on open terrace of a small restaurant there. Just a LOVE experience.
The Gorge is a must visit place. It is so quiet and beautiful and I would recommend this place to everyone whenever visiting Japan and looking for a serene place.
