Outdoor activity tours

Waterfall trekking

Hida-Osaka spreads at the west foot of Mt. Ontake where more than 200 waterfalls are hidden here and there.  Some of them deep in the mountain are accessible only with the licensed guides of 216WORKS and Hida-Osaka 200 Falls.  The tour involves trekking without track and wading and is full of adventure.  I'm the guide here since the summer of 2017.

canyoning

In summer, you can't miss this activity in Hida-Osaka.  Swimming, jumping, sliding in the river.  Appreciating the nature with your whole body is the cure of your life!  The tour is available from the mid July to the mid September.

Frozen waterfall trekking

This is definitely the new winter trend in the town.  The incredible scenery deep in the snowy mountain makes you forget about the fatigue of 1.5 hours of snowshoe trekking each way.  The best time to enjoy the tour is Februray.

E-bike tour

A tour that connects you with Hida-Osaka culturally, historically and naturally.  Hida-Osaka is not only about many waterfalls.  My love toward the town concludes that everything in HO has so much to do with Mt. Ontake.  Mt. Ontake explains everything.  You will understand what I'm trying to say if you join this tour.

E-bike tour includes a visit to the local Buddhist temple.

Gandate park hiking tour

A 5-hour easy hiking tour in the symbolic park, Gandate Park, in Hida-Osaka will give you the idea how this area was made after the repetitive volcanic activities of Mt. Ontake, and how local people have lived in harmony with the nature.  

Gandate Park has 3 waterfalls that you can easily visit.

mountain trekking tour

70 % of the land in Japan is covered by mountains, and you will not have hard time finding the suitable mountain for you to trek!  Of course the most recommended tour is my mother mountain, Mt. Ontake.  It's one of the 3 holly mountains in Japan.  A day trekking is possible, but I highly recommend to stay overnight at the mountain lodge.
