Walk at your own pace on hiking courses ranging from casual to challenging, or for an even deeper experience, reserve a guided tour. The waterfall trekking tour is a particular delight, and will take you through a national forest typically off limits to visitors. You'll venture uphill, downhill, and off the beaten path as you wade through rivers and feel the mist against your face.
Hida Osaka offers delights that change with the seasons, from verdant greenery and the songs of the birds in spring, to brilliant autumn foliage and newly-spawned fish jumping above the waters in fall. The nearby hot spring village—featuring unique carbonated baths—is sure to soothe your body and soul.
The Hida Osaka Falls are nestled in the foothills of Gifu Prefecture, reachable most quickly in two hours by express and local train from Nagoya.
