The Hida area is dotted with mountains in the 3,000-meter class, and the Mino region is where the Kiso River, the Nagara River and the Ibo River (Kiso-Sansen) run through the Noobi Plain.

Gifu offers lots of Japanese traditional sights such as Shirakawa's historic villages and Takayama city and many onsen (hot springs) which contains good minerals.
