Hirayuotaki Fall, Takayama
(3.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Seemingly spitting out of a rock face, which is covered in lush green plants, Hirayuotaki Fall plummets 64 m (213 ft) into a basin and during winter months has been known to freeze up entirely, creating a blue icy column-- a magical sight among snow frosted trees. An abundance of greenery greets you during warmer months of year, making the waterfall an ideal picnic location. The fall is easy accessible by car or shuttle bus, and make sure you wear appropriate shoes and clothing if you visit in the winter. Take a look at our Takayama tourist route planner to schedule your visit to Hirayuotaki Fall and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • 平湯溫泉一帶,只有一間售賣紀念品的商店,附近全是溫泉酒店。我和一位台灣女士曾在這兒四周逛逛,走了一小時多,除了公路,還是公路,不見遠足徑,更不見大瀑布。 
  • 事實上平湯景點不多,平湯大瀑布10月去時真是不很漂亮,只係一個小瀑布。有停車場,但其實由平湯市中心行去只需15分鐘。可以一去。 
  • It's nice but nothing special. There are lot of other falls in Japan which are equal or nicer. If ur by chance around so maybe good chance to spend an hour
