Hirayuotaki Fall, Takayama

(130+ reviews on the web)
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.
