The Amidagataki Falls, which are famous for having been depicted by the ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai in his “Shokoku Taki Meguri” (“Journey to the Waterfalls in All the Provinces”) collection, have been ranked among the Top 100 most beautiful waterfalls in Japan and the Top 50 best water landscapes in Gifu Prefecture. With a height of 60 meters, this is without doubt the most famous waterfall in the Tokai region. There is a footpath leading up close to the plunge pool, so visitors can appreciate the power and beauty of the waterfall at close hand. Amidagataki Falls are located around 30-minute drive from the Hakucho Interchange of the Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway.

Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
