Hirayu Otaki is a famous waterfall with a height of about 64 meters and a width of 6 meters in the Hirayu Onsen area and has been selected as one of the 100 best waterfalls in Japan.

The “Hirayu Otaki Freezing Festival” is held from mid to late February every year, showing beautiful/different scenery in each of the four seasons, especially the fresh green in spring and the autumn leaves are a must-see
