Step back into a traditional way of life with a visit to Gujo, a little Japanese city rich in culture. Formed from the merger of seven neighboring towns, Gujo remains relatively compact, nestled within a verdant valley. A network of waterways have provided a source of drinking water for centuries, enjoyed today from every tap or in a glass of locally made sake. Residents here maintain an old way of life, and visitors on a Gujo vacation can experience rural Japan off the beaten track, enjoying the history told by the city's castle, shrines, and museums. Famed for its authentic Japanese summer dance festival, the streets of Gujo come alive from mid July to September, with some performances lasting until dawn. Make the most of your holiday in Gujo by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Japan vacation route planner.

Where to stay in Gujo

Gujo's traditional Japanese ryokans, dispersed throughout the city's historic center and outer districts, boast Edo period lodgings, views of the historic castle, and an authentic taste of Japanese culture. If you're looking for authenticity on a more modest budget, opt for one of the family-run "minshukus"--bed and breakfasts offering a unique opportunity to live alongside the locals in their homes. If your trip to Gujo falls in the summer months (June to mid-September), book early as the rooms fill up during its renowned dance festival.
