Stop at Hirayu for a wonderful Onsen experience on the way back from Shinhotaga to Takayama. It was really relaxing after a half day hike. Onsen after a good hike is a must. Love it there

We love the Hirayu because it's a remote place without crowded. It's surrounded with mountain ranges with snow on top in Spring. The temperature is really good and is lower that any city nearby. If you drive from Takayama to Hirayu, You will enjoy very good snow and mountainous view. There are a few attractions around also and there are... More

I had all 8 rotenburo baths to myself for an hour before some local japanese woman came. It is a must if you are in the region and want to experience a traditional onse wiht outdoor pools. I would say earlier in the morning is best before people staying at the property check in the early afternoon or before a... More

Hirayu Onsen is a nice brief stopover on a day trip to shin hodaka. We stop here after visiting shin hodaka for the sole purpose of the onsen at Hirayuno-mori which is just 5 mins walk from the bus station. With our pass, we got a discount and paid Y400 instead of the normal rate of Y500. They dont provide... More
