Overview

Good getaway from city! Takachiho is located in the northwest of Miyazaki. Although it takes more than 3 hours to get there from Fukuoka, it is worth visiting to see those beautiful sceneries. Takachiho has been known since ancient times as a sacred ground where the gods descended to earth.

What to Expect

In this tour, we'll visit Takachiho from Fukuoka. It takes about 3 hours and 40 mins by bus from Fukuoka city. Once we arrive in Takachiho, we'll have lunch near the bus station. Then we'll hire a taxi and first go to Amanoiwato shrine, this shrine venerates the nearby site of the Amanoiwato or "holy rock cave" where, according to Japan's oldest chronicles, the sun goddess Amaterasu hid herself when she was angered by the violence of her brother. Then, we will walk to Amanoyasukawara (big cave) where 8millions gods and goddesses gathered to have an important meeting. After the cave, we will visit Takachiho shrine which is the most important Shinto shrine in the area. After that, we will go to the Takachiho gorge. The Takachiho Gorge was designated as National Scenic and Natural Monument for its spectacular view. At the end, we'll visit Kunimigaoka observation deck, enjoy the beautiful view of Takachiho from there.
Finally we go back to the bus center and take a bus to Fukuoka city. We'll arrive at Fukuoka around 8:20pm.

“ great family tour ”

Our Family enjoyed the tour with Hitomi. We visited the Udo-shrine. There you have an impressive view on the Pacific. The shrine itself is build in a cave. And Hitomi tell you why the shrine was built. Afterwards we did go to the moai statues. Where also a small Museum is located. Finally we enjoyed a cafe in Miyazaki downtown. Thanks for all!
