Castles · Ski Areas · Landmarks
Step back into a traditional way of life with a visit to Gujo, a little Japanese city rich in culture. Formed from the merger of seven neighboring towns, Gujo remains relatively compact, nestled within a verdant valley. A network of waterways have provided a source of drinking water for centuries, enjoyed today from every tap or in a glass of locally made sake. Residents here maintain an old way of life, and visitors on a Gujo vacation can experience rural Japan off the beaten track, enjoying the history told by the city's castle, shrines, and museums. Famed for its authentic Japanese summer dance festival, the streets of Gujo come alive from mid July to September, with some performances lasting until dawn. Find what you're looking for from your Gujo holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Japan trip planning website.
