Hirayuotaki Fall, Takayama

3.2
#1 of 15 in Parks in Takayama
Waterfall Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Takayama

Look along the banks of the river running north-south through Takayama for arguably the town's best accommodations. Traditional ryokan (guesthouses) with onsite onsen (traditional Japanese spas) occupy scenic positions across this central area, displaying fine carpentry skills of the locals and the distinctive architectural style they developed over the years. West of this area, you'll find a number of basic ryokan, with a decent selection of side-street hostels and standard hotels around the train station.
