Takachiho Amaterasu Railway

“Super cart” run the trace of “Takachiho Railway Takachiho Line” which became an obsolete line in December 2008.

Takachiho Amaterasu Railway
Departing from the former “Takachiho station”, will cross the “Takachiho bridge” known as the highest railway bridge in Japan in the active era, and come back.
It is about 30 minutes round trip.

The rice terraces of Takachiho are quite good.

I saw “Takachiho Amatertasu Railway” on the way to Amakiwa Shrine.
It runs in such places.

From March 2017, it seems that new cars with increased capacity have appeared.
If you go to Takachiho, let’s get on.

From the top or the bottom, “Manai waterfall” at Takachiho Gorge

I guess it depends on the season, About noon the sun will be plugged into the valley.
During that time, I recommend that you boat out to Takachiho Gorges.

Amanoyasu Kawara

There is “Amanoyasu Kawara” in the back of Amano Iwato Shrine.
There is a torii in the cave of a large entrance, and stones are piled up.
Amanoyasu Kawara
Previously there was only a shrine “subject.
It seems that stones have been piled up by the hands of prayers some time.
A mountain of stone in countless numbers is creating a magical atmosphere.


“Kunimigaoka” is known for the sea of clouds in early morning.
I stayed in Takachiho for 3 nights and expected “sea of clouds”, but I could not even see it for three days.
The above picture is the “cloud like sea of cloud” that I could see (;^_^A

You can see “Aso’s Nirvana Statue”.

Takachiho Kagura Dance

Takachiho Kagura Dance
Takachiho Kagura is dedicated at Kagura-dori in Takachiho Shrine Shrine every evening from 20 o’clock every evening.
As dancers in each village take turns dedicating, you can enjoy “authentic dance”.
