Gifu prefecture is located in the center of Japan. The northern Hida region is a great sightseeing spot where you can enjoy an authentic Japanese atmosphere. One of the most famous areas is the archaeological and World Heritage Site, Shirakawago, surrounded by high mountains. At the nearby Northern Alps, the temperature is low, so you can enjoy highland touring in the summer and winter sports in the winter. There are also many famous hot springs such as Gero Onsen, which shouldn’t be missed.
