GUJO Outdoor Experience
Gujo, nationwide well-known for its Gujo Odori dance, is located in the center of Gifu. It only takes around 1 hour to go from Nagoya and 3 hours from Osaka. The attractive point of Gujo is of course the rich nature! Around 90% of the city is covered by forest. It is located at the headstream of Nagaragawa River, where the famous Gujo Ayu lives. Go cycling or mountaineering in spring and autumn when the weather is good. Playing at the river in summer or going skiing in winter. Outdoor activities in nature can be enjoyed throughout the whole year.
The concept of Gujo NOASOBU, an experiential program in which you can try something very special and secret, is to let people experience these “Special” activities.
It is best to ask the local people about the charm of the area. We know a lot of charms such as fun places, beautiful scenery, delicious foods, etc. which are not listed on travel guides or the Internet.That is why our guides are local people living in Gujo! You can join a wild vegetable picking tour with the landlady of an inn who is familiar with wild vegetables, or an Ayu fishing tour by Ayu fishing masters. Time-limited tours which cannot be done on a regular tour, are developed by outdoor professionals and outdoor activity companies with charms that the locals know. You can understand the attractiveness of Gujo by interacting with local people and experiencing the nature, culture, and life of Gujo from the same perspective as a local. You can have a wonderful and unforgettable experience from adults to small children. This experience program of "Gujo NOASOBU" is updated from time to time according to the season. Please join us and create great memories of your trip with your family and friends.
