Amo Natural Park is a large natural park located between Hida City and Shirakawa-go.
A virgin forest of beech trees and a swamp with white arums and yellow marsh marigolds create a mystic sense of beauty.
Amo-toge Pass in the natural park is the setting of a novel entitled "Koya Hijiri" written by Kyoka Izumi.
The pass is one of the best spot to see the colorful autumn leaves in Hida.
