Secluded hot spring on Shirayama Shirakawago White Road in Gifu
When we visited the Shirakawago area, we drove through Shirayama Shirakawago White Road between Shirayama City in Ishikawa prefecture and Shirakawa village in Gifu Prefecture. When I checked the road on the map, it looked very short. However, the distance was 33.3 km at an altitude ranging from 600 to 1,450 m. The road had so many sharp bends and blind curves. We needed to take a break every 10 mins. Parking and restrooms are available at all view spots.
We parked at Shirakawago Observatory deck at 1,230 m altitude to see the Shirakawago area and to walk around.
We visited Oyadani hot spring and Ubagataki Falls. Oyadani hot spring gushes out from the riverbed where an open-air bath and foot bath are located.
