JAPAN, Miyazaki – With calm waters and breathtaking views, Takachiho Gorge is one of the best spots to appreciate Japan’s natural beauty.

The site perhaps owes its supernatural beauty to its spiritual history, being the hiding place of the Shinto Sun Goddess Amaterasu and the disputed landing place of her grandson Ninigi no Mikoto, said to be the progenitor of Japan’s royal lineage.

We recommend visiting during Autumn to see Takachiho Gorge is at its most bewitching; with fiery red leaves contrasting against deep cerulean waters.
