Forest high ropes in the Japanese mountains
Explore the forests of the Hida region in a unique manner with this forest high ropes activity. An activity for the whole family.
In the heart of the Japanese mountains in the Hida region
The Hida region, north of Gifu, the central mountain region of Japan, is known for its wilderness, primary forests and unspoilt countryside. It includes the town of Takayama, the village of Shirakawago (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its thatched houses where silk was produced), and the Gero Hot Springs.
Maze village is surrounded by a forest of centuries-old cedar trees which are used for carpentry. The Mazegawa River flows through the valley and is renowned by fishermen from all over the world for its "ayu" fishing. It is in this idyllic Japanese hinterland, between the traditional and the majestic nature, that you can spend some time in the opposite of urban Japan.
Make the most of your time before or after your activity to explore Maze village, enjoy its onsen, or taste the seasonal dishes (e.g. ayu fish caught in the river during the summer months) and many other things that your host Gwenn will be able to advise you on.
