In far northern Miyazaki Prefecture, the pretty mountain town of Takachiho (高千穂) is a remote but rewarding destination. Legend has it that this is the site where Japan's sun goddess brought light back to the world and, as if that weren't reason enough to visit, there's a deep and dramatic gorge through the town centre.
