Gujo Vacance Mura (Gujo City, Gifu)
Gujo Vacance Mura is a small ski hill located in the northern area of Gujo city in the central region of Gifu Prefecture. It is on the western slopes of Kentozan and owned and operated along with the base hotel and it seems mostly used by guests of the hotel.
Gujo Vacance Mura used to be known as 'Gujo Kogen'. Mura means 'village'. The hotel as base has also changed it's name to Gujo Vacance Mura Hotel.
New for 2019-2020, a bunch of ski resorts in the area are grouping up to create 'Takasu Mountains' and a joint lift ticket available. The resorts included are Dynaland, Takasu Snow Park, Hirugano Kogen, White Pia Takasu, Washigatake and Gujo Vacance Village. Curiously, the joint ticket is not valid at Gujo Vacance Village. (Doh!)
Most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Gujo city are located on the mountains either side of the Tokai Hokuriku Expressway which connects Aichi Prefecture with Toyama Prefecture and the local road Route 156 (Hida Highway) which also runs through the valley. This region is especially popular with people living in or visiting the Kansai regions of western Japan like Nagoya, Gifu, Shiga, Kyoto and Osaka. Train links aren't the most convenient and so this region sees most people arriving by car or bus tours.
Gifu Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the central region of Honshu island, and it one of only a handful of landlocked prefectures. It shares borders with (from the north) Toyama, Nagano, Aichi, Mie, Shiga, Fukui and Ishikawa. Most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Gifu are located in the northern region of the prefecture – in Gujo city, Takayama city, Hida city and Shirakawa village.
