About partial closure of Hirono Section detour (Nakano Shirataki Falls path)

Due to falling rocks and damage to the hiking path from Typhoon 21 (Typhoon Lan), part of the detour route passing Shirataki-jinja Shrine is currently closed (between Nakano Fishing Harbor and Nakano Shirataki Falls).

If you can’t wade through Koge river due to high water, you won’t be able to enter the detour path from there. Please use Prefectural Road 139 and National Route 45 to get on the detour.

1. Closed Areas:
As shown in map (location map)

2. Period of closure
For the time being.

Information on this closure is also posted on the Hirono tourism site at http://hirono-kankou.jp/ (Automatic English translation available)
