Where you’ll be

Gujo, Gifu, Japan

Gujo-Hachiman is an undiscovered gem located in central Japan, about 80 minutes north of Nagoya and an hour west of Takayama. It is known as “Little Kyoto,” due to its similar architectural style, and also "The City of Water," due to its centuries old water system that is still very much in tact, and the fact that it located at the convergence of three rivers.
