Gandate Picnic in Hida-Osaka

More than 200 years ago, Kakumei, a Buddhist monk found a route to the summit of Mt.Ontake. The tour follows this ancient trail, passes Mitsudaki, and guides you through oak trees up to the long bluff of Gandate. There are some interesting spots on this route, such as Ontake Iwa, and Kirinoki hole, where once an ogre was believed to live. This is the route of legends.
You can easily join and enjoy the local guide’s talk. and appreciate the surrounding nature with your five senses… which might induce your 6th sense!?
Enjoy this 2km round trip. Allow extra 2 hours for a longer course to see two other falls, Akaganetoyo and Karatanidaki. Each fall has its own character: different faces, different music.

A big bluff made from Mt.Ontake’s eruption 54,000years ago.
