Takachiho Gorge 高千穂峡. Carved by the Gokase River, the highlight here is the 17m Minai-no-taki Waterfall from a boat is beautiful and mysterious.
While there is a hiking path along the edge, it's best viewed by renting a boat (¥2000/30 min) and going for a paddle, since the current is gentle and easy to navigate.
Takachiho Gorge was formed from lava from Mount Aso which over time eroded to create 80 to 100 m high cliffs of volcanic basalt columns. Its old mysterious abysses and water trickling from rocks are complemented by vivid greenery.
