Tedori canyon is such a beautiful canyon that has been made by Tedori river from Hakusan mountains. 20〜30 meter-cliff continues for about 8 km from Kamashimizu (Koumon bridge) to Kawarayama (Taizan bridge). Falling water of Watagaki waterfall looks like cotton, that is reason why the river is called "Wata"gaki waterfall. "Wata" means cotton in Japanese.
The canyon is on the way from Yamanaka Onsen"Kuriya Yasohachi" to Kanazawa via Shirayamahime Shrine, and you can head into Hida Takayama via Shirakawago from the hotel (only summer 〜 autumn).
It is great for sightseeing especially in the spring or autumn when can be enjoyed flesh green or autumn colour. You will be stunned by the beauty.
