Hirayu Fall, Takayama

3.3
#1 of 19 in Parks in Takayama
Seemingly spitting out of a rock face, which is covered in lush green plants, Hirayu 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.

  • The snow is still thick. Because it is trampled, it is hard to walk because it slips a little though it is able to walk in the zuc. Still, if you walk 20 minutes from the bus stop, you will reach. Not only the waterfall but also the surrounding scenery and the sound are healed. The way back is downhill, so it's early.

  • It is located on the right just before entering the hot spring town through the Hirayu Tunnel after about 40 minutes by car from Takayama. It is a waterfall of Hirayu which can be visited in about a 20-minute walk from Hirayu Bus Terminal. It's been over 50 years since I first saw it, but the flow rate hasn't changed, and the coolness of a hot summer day is relieved. In addition, it might be preferable when driving in accordance with the autumn leaves season (the middle of october to the end of october usually).
