GIFU PREFECTURE

Home to traditional mountain villages and popular skiing resorts, Gifu is also famous as the location of the epoch-defining Battle of Sekigahara of 1600, which triggered the unification of the country under the rule of the Tokugawa shogunate. Hiking and hot springs abound throughout the prefecture, and Gero is one such spot, worthy of a few days' break.
