Gujo Hachiman Castle

Reviewed By Bestlambert - Taipei, Taiwan

Overlooking the town from above was an exceptional experience. Everything was like what we usually saw about past Japan in movies or animations. The old streets and buildings were well preserved. On the foot of the mountain was a temple with graveyard. And the castle just sat on the top of the hill. It was around 15-minute walk from the parking lot to the castle.

Hirugano Kogen Service Area

Reviewed By Pechfoodlover - Canberra, Australia

All service areas (where motorist stop for a break) in Japan are just fantastic, like a cross between a service station and a tourist information centre. They always seem to stock locally produced gifts and food so each one is different and just so much fun to visit. This service area also has great views of the surrounding Mountains covered in snow. Here you can also buy the Hirugano Kogen milk and icecream which are just sublime! A must see if you are driving past.

Gujo Hachiman Castle Town

Reviewed By LG_Kay - Singapore, Singapore

This is a quaint town where one can spend hours leisurely strolling the streets. It is famous for its waterway and canals along the row of houses, which have been preserved. The water is soothing, clear and is still used for washing rice, vegetables and laundry. A common sight is a red bucket hanging from the eaves of the house. In the event of fire, one can use the bucket to collect water from the waterway.
There are also many shops selling handicrafts, souvenirs, food replicas as well as eateries. As there are hardly any vehicles here, it is quiet and peaceful. Not many tourists too. It is a good way to spend half a day to experience the charm and slow pace of life here.

Takasu Snow Park

Reviewed By Victor K - Hong Kong

More snowboarders here but equally suitable for Skiers like me. Mostly red slopes with good choice for beginners. A few snow parks for boarders. I particularly appreciate that most courses are long enough to enjoy. Do not rent gear in the base and you better find gears to rent at 40-50% discount.

Tetsuya Odori (Gujo Odori)

The Tetsuya Odori is the highlight of the Gujo Odori dance festival. Taking place in heat of late summer, locals and visitors alike dominate to the evening streets to learn and perform Japanese traditional folk dances. Taking place over four days, dancers remain on the street energetically whirling from 8:00pm until dawn the following day. While any form of dress is welcome, shops and stalls rent out patterned yukata, and many guests don wooden 'geta' shoes that help to keep the rhythm and add to the beat of the music. It's a whirlwind of spirit and zeal, where strangers become friends and hundreds of people enjoy dancing like no one is watching.

Meiho Ski Resort

Reviewed By bow507 - 亀岡市, 京都府

2月上旬の平日、初めてお邪魔しました。京都の自宅から3時間半余り、朝5時に出発して9時前には滑り出せました。当日は快晴で気温氷点下10度以下と、ゲレンデコンディションは最高で、平日だった事も相まって、昼食時間以外をぶっ通しで午後3時頃まで滑り続けました。2本のリフトで山頂まで登れる為、ストレスフリーで5,000メートルの滑走が楽しめます。上級者向けのコブコブ斜面も3バーンあり、特に山頂リフト降り場から左に降りるコースは、このスキー場最高難度の急斜面で、迂回路も無いので初心者は間違っても迷い込まない事です。レストハウスは3箇所、ベースにはサブウェイやムラサキスポーツもあり、設備も整っています。スキー場近くにも温泉がありますが、下呂や高山へも1時間程度なので、ゲレンデでの疲れを温泉で癒すのもお薦めです。言わずと知れた明宝ハムは、この辺りの特産品です。

This place is a well developed tourist attraction but has all the charm and interesting things to see and do of anything in Gifu Prefecture. It's an excellent walk through the limestone cave and, during the heat of the Summer, offers a great cool escape in it's 14 degree temperatures year-round.

Reviewed By DCx3 - Osaka, Japan

Dynaland and the neighboring Takasu snow park make the area you can snowboard or ski quite large. The dynaland side on weekends opens at 5am and closes at 11pm, so theoretically you could be on the mountain for 18 hours! The Snowpark is quite good...MoreThank you reviews !

めいほうスキー場のお膝元にある道の駅です。郡上市イチの道の駅と謳われているように休業日もない上に品数を豊富に揃えている活気あるお店が並んでおり、多くの利用客の姿からもその『はやり』が感じ取ることができます。
またこの明宝の地は平安時代末期に木曾義仲と源義経が宇治川を挟んで戦った際に先陣争いをした佐々木四郎高綱操る名馬磨墨の生まれ故郷とされており、その銅像が聳えていました。
謂れは多々あれど全体的に見ると大したことがない道の駅の中では珍しく観光に貢献している道の駅だと思います。
