Kanomizu no Kakeodori寒水の掛踊


This traditional event, held on the second Saturday and Sunday in September, has been conducted at Hakusan-jinja Shrine in Kanomizu district for some 300 years. Taking on various traditional roles of Kamishimo, Nengi, Kagitori, Otomo, Oridaiko and Okame etc. over 100 local men offer forth a grand kake-odori dance performance. The portion of the programing involving four young men wielding 3.6 meter long bamboo shinai decorated with flowers is particularly worth seeing.

Gifu Main Areas


Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
