Refresh yourself at Hirayu Onsen Hot Springs, a part of the Okuhida Onsen area!
Visiting an onsen hot spring is a must during a visit to Japan. The mountain area of Hida Takayama sets the perfect atmosphere for relaxing at Hirayu Onsen. Boasting scenic outdoor hot springs in addition to the indoor onsen, enjoy the beautiful green views during the spring and summer months, fall foliage during autumn, and a snowy mountain scene during the winter months.
Many onsen offer kashikiri, or private, baths by reservations. Since baths are separated by gender, be sure to reserve a private bath if you want to stay together to enjoy the hot springs! This is especially helpful if you are traveling with children.
We also recommend heading back to the main Jr Takayama Station area if you are looking for dinner options. Many of the stops and restaurants in the Hirayu Onsen area tend to close early, so you will have more variety to choose from near the station.
