Takachiho/Japan

Introducing Takachiho

In far northern Miyazaki-ken, this pretty mountain town is a remote but rewarding destination, as the site where legend says Japan's sun goddess brought light back to the world. As if that weren't reason enough to visit, there's a deep and dramatic gorge through the town centre. The Town Centre Information Office is across from the bus centre.
