Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kyushu / Miyazaki Prefecture / Nishiusuki-gun / Takachiho-cho / Amano Yasugawara
Help other deities lure the sun goddess out of her cave and bring light back to the world at Amano Yasugawara. Following a pleasant 15-minute hike through the forest along a stream, you'll stumble upon stacks of stones, which serve as wish towers made by devotees and visitors paying tribute to the sun goddess. You can’t enter the cave, but can instead admire it from an observation deck. The cave is believed to have many spiritual powers and attracts crowds of visitors year-round. It can be reached via Amano Iwato Shrine, some 10 km (6 mi) from Takachino.

Amano Yasugawara Reviews
実はこのスポットの事に関して無知で、高千穂峡が最大の目的で来た今回の旅で、最も印象的だった場所がここです。 あの空間がこの世のものとは思えないぐらい異様さで未だに夢だったんじゃないかと思えるほどです。 それくらいのインパクト。 もし他に観光客が居なくてあの空間にひとりぼっちでいたら神隠しにあうのでは…と思う様な異空間です。 行って体験しないと写真ではわかりません！ バスターミナル近くの観光案内所の... more »In fact, I was ignorant about this spot, and this is the most impressive place on this trip where Takachihokyo came for the utmost purpose. It is so strange that i can't think that space belongs to this world that it was still a dream. That much impact. If there were no other tourists and you were alone in that space, you wouldn't be in hiding. It is a different space like i think. If you don't go and experience it, you won't know it in the photos! I asked the tourist office near the bus terminal about the recommended route and started the walk. My motto is to use my feet and buses without using taxis, but i have to take a taxi from Takachihokyo to Teniwato Shrine for this trip because i don't have time. I visited with the strong recommendation of the driver at that time. It was really good to go. There are countless stone stones, a toii of the caves, and a clear river surface of incredible beauty that encompasses them all. Everything was impressive.
行ってみてとてもよかったです。森林浴、パワースポット。ただ、道を下るということは道を登るということ。 真夏はキツイかな。健脚自慢なお年寄りはとても楽しめると思います。 more »It was very good to go there. Forest bathing, power spot. However, to go down the road is to climb the road. It's hard in midsummer. I think that the elderly person who is proud of healthy legs can enjoy it very much.
