Soak up waterfalls and mountain air at a retreat in Takachiho
From shochu spirits to kagura performances, this Kyushu inn has you covered
An intimate village nestled in the mountains of Miyazaki. A deep gorge sparkling with towering waterfalls. And an inn of relaxing ryokan residences. Welcome to Kamigakure.
With only eight rooms spread across multiple residences, your stay is sure to be quiet and restorative. At night, enjoy a meal prepared with locally sourced ingredients, such as local Takachiho beef or fresh masu salmon straight from the nearby rivers, and wash it down with local shochu. Finally, sink into your suite's private bath fed with water from a nearby sacred waterfall.
Experience the natural beauty of Takachiho's waterfalls, tour the local shrines, or head to the top of Kunimigaoka and take in the breathtaking view from above the clouds. Kamigakure is short walk from the spectacular Takachiho Gorge, where you can paddle by the falls in a rowboat. Another spectacular local attraction is the traditional kagura dance performances at Takachiho Shrine.
Access: Drive from Fukuoka Station (2 hrs. 40 mins.).
