Hi, I am Matsu from J-Hoppers Hida Takayama.
It is getting hot in Japan.
Takayama recorded 33℃ highest temperature 3days ago for this year

There are many waterfalls around Takayama.
I want you to tell you one of them called Hirayu-otaki.
This beautiful waterfall drops 64 meters.

Also there are many onsens in Hirayu area.
You can go to a onsen on the way back to Takayama.

Access: 1 hour from Takayama by Nohi bus.
