Hida Takayama is a small ski area located to the east of central Takayama city in the northern region of Gifu Prefecture. Normally this area enjoys good snow conditions and fine 360 views can be enjoyed from the top. There are actually three lifts but the Kamoshika lift is has not been operating in recent years.
Hida Takayama will not open for the 2020-2021 season due to damage from the heavy rainfalls in July 2020. Hopefully it will be back open for 2021-2022.
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.
