Gifu Prefecture is home to the famous Gero Hot Springs and has a historic urban landscape with an abundance of nature. Usuzumi and Chujo Hime Seigan cherry blossoms are designated as protected species. The gassho style houses in Shirakawa Village, a world heritage-listed area, are beautiful in snow-covered winter and throughout the year. Takayama City referred to as "the little Kyoto of Hida" retains an old-world Edo period flavor, and visitors can snack on a sweet local food, Mitarashi Dango.
