  • Were in Miyazaki, one of the least populated and most remote prefectures in Japan.

  • Being mountainous, undeveloped, and out of the way,

  • Miyazaki is hands down one of the best places to get lost in the beauty of Japan’s natural landscapes.

  • Hey guys! Today thanks to Odigo were here at Takachiho Gorge in Miyazaki prefecture

  • and unfortunately the water level’s a little too high so we can’t do the boat riding today,

  • but were gonna explore this beautiful gorge. Let’s go.

  • This gorge is famous for its beauty, but also its geology.

  • The jointed column walls of this gorge were formed 90,000 years ago from the volcanic eruption of Mt. Aso,

  • which actually also just erupted earlier this month,

  • although there were no major geographic changes this time.

  • They also have a bunch of pretty cool wildlife here.

  • What the heck is this?! Jun, what is it?!?!

  • Kamikiri-mushi (Longhorn beetle)

  • WHAT IS IT?!

  • Don't touch it.

  • Does it bite?

  • If you touch him, maybe.

  • EUUGUHHH IT'S SO BIG

  • He has a pretty damn strong jaw so you can bleed easily.

  • OKOKOKOK LET'S GO

  • Leaving now!

  • He can... break the branch.

  • WOAH

  • These aren't koi. What are these?

  • These are sturgeon, aka butterfly sharks in Japanese.

  • These are the fish that produce caviar,

  • and supposedly that’s what these are being grown for.

  • Feeding fail

  • YAHHHH

  • Nope.

  • I can't tell if they care or not.

  • Dude, buddy.

  • You're awesome.

  • Bug catching is really popular in Japan,

  • and apparently among dragonfly catchers here it’s common knowledge

  • that you can hypnotize dragonflies by spinning your finger in a circular motion.

  • Because their eyes see through thousands of overlapping facets,

  • the motion of the finger supposedly confuses them

  • and theyre unable to tell which direction the hand is coming from.

  • There's a butterfly tornado here for some reason.

  • What??

  • What is this?

  • I didn’t know it at the time, but these butterflies are doing something calledmud-puddling”.

  • Theyre sucking up the liquids in the mud in order to gain various nutrients, salts, and amino acids.

  • While they look cute here, butterflies have also been known to puddle on

  • rotten fruit,

  • dung,

  • carrion,

  • human sweat,

  • and rarely, even tears

  • and blood.

  • Aww so cute BLOOD SUCKING DEMON

  • The Aya Teruha Suspension bridge is 142 meters high and 250 meters long,

  • and connects a nature center with basically nothing,

  • although there is a small shrine and pilgrimage trail on the other side,

  • which is not worth climbing the mountain in summer to see, TRUST ME I DID IT.

  • REALLY?!

  • [heavy breathing]

  • THIS IS ALL THERE IS?!

  • [more heavy breathing]

  • IT'S FRICKING SMALL

  • This area is meant to help people feel closer to nature,

  • and they encourage you to study the wildlife,

  • which includes weird goats-

  • huehue I wanna find a weird goat.

  • -and blood-sucking worms.

  • Oh hey.

  • Yeah?

  • They have hiru--

  • --the worm that sucks your blood.

  • NOOO NOHOHOHOOO

  • Oh, they force you to step on the grating at some point.

  • Okay. Okay.

  • If you insist.

  • You can see a massive shadow from the bridge down there.

  • Chris is not okay with heights.

  • The bridge is swaying.

  • YES

  • Udo Jingu is a shrine built into a cliffside cave.

  • The long path to the shrine was supposedly built by travelers

  • who individually brought stones from the port over the course of several hundred years.

  • You can see how the center stones are worn down

  • from so many people walking on them.

  • It's too hot to resist.

  • Jun's getting me strawberry shaved ice.

  • I need the ice inside my body.

  • Thank you!

  • The legend of the shrine says a man married Toyotama-hime,

  • the daughter of the Dragon King of the Ocean.

  • When she was in the cave giving birth he entered and saw her true form,

  • which was some sort of water monster.

  • And because she was revealed she had to go back to the ocean,

  • but she... umm...

  • she left behind her breast to feed her son

  • which is now a rock in the cave

  • from which water drips

  • and if you drink the cave boob water, it’s supposed to help you with childbirth.

  • Jun, it looks like we can throw more stones into the rock.

  • You need to make it stay in the circle. Are you up for it?

  • The men are supposed to use their left hand and the women are supposed to use their right hand.

  • Good for you Jun, you're left-handed!

  • But when I do sports I use my right hand.

  • Oh, really?

  • To throw. Left hand to hit.

  • I think that would be too easy for you anyway so you need the handicap.

  • What?

  • It's just right there.

  • Oh, look! There's so many stones.

  • Okay, we gotta do it.

  • All right!

  • Let's go see if we'll get some luck!

  • Go Jun, you can do it!

  • You are our best hope.

  • Close!

  • It just breaks apart.

  • All of yours hit inside. They just didn't stay.

  • I'm done. Sorry.

  • Good luck, Rachel!

  • Okay!

  • Oh, you got it in! OH YAY!

  • Yay!

  • AHH I got two!

  • Yaaay!

  • You got two in, so one for me. Thank you.

  • Sorry, that one was really far off.

  • It's okay! I got enough for both of us!

  • YAY HIGH FIVE

  • YEAH
