Hirayuotaki Fall, Takayama

3.2
#1 of 15 in Parks in Takayama
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. Plan my Takayama trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • We walked the trail in a downpour, but the gentle climb and increasing roar of the water made it all worthwhile. Worth the detour!  more »
  • On the road back to falls will appear. You can very easy walking trails lead to waterfalls. You can see the winter including parking, a plow, so half frozen waterfalls. Boardwalk to the spa facilities and giant NESCO trees (closed during winter), campsites and is located in cool Highlands (elevation 1234 m * catchy) in and summer you can stay cool.

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.
