Discover Hida Furukawa

Hida Furukawa

Furukawa is a small town in the mountains of Gifu Prefecture and the center of the rural municipality of Hida City. Furukawa is located only about a 15 minute train ride north of the city of Takayama.
Furukawa is smaller and calmer than Takayama. Like Takayama, the town gained wealth and fame through the high quality timber found in the region and the high level craftsmanship skills of the local carpenters. Like Takayama, Furukawa has a nicely preserved old town and a famous festival. Held one week after the Takayama Spring Festival, the Furukawa Festival features large drums, barely dressed men and tall, beautifully decorated floats.
