Lonely Planet review
Takachiho's magnificent gorge, with its waterfall, overhanging rocks and sheer walls, was formed over 120,000 years ago by a double volcanic eruption. There's a 1km-long nature trail above the gorge. Or view it up close from a rowboat , though during high season it can be as busy as rush hour.
