Meiho is located in the northern area of Gujo city in the central region of Gifu Prefecture. This resort is found on the north eastern slopes of Mt Eboshi and was opened in 1989. It is more to the east and separate from most of the resorts in Gujo.
Meiho managed to be open for 124 days during the 2019-2020 winter season (9th December through 10th April).
Most of the other ski and snowboard resorts in Gujo city are located on the mountains either side of the Tokai Hokuriku Expressway which connects Aichi Prefecture with Toyama Prefecture and the local road Route 156 (Hida Highway) which also runs through the valley. This region is especially popular with people living in or visiting the Kansai regions of western Japan like Nagoya, Gifu, Shiga, Kyoto and Osaka. Train links aren't the most convenient and so this region sees most people arriving by car or bus tours.
Gifu Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the central region of Honshu island, and it one of only a handful of landlocked prefectures. It shares borders with (from the north) Toyama, Nagano, Aichi, Mie, Shiga, Fukui and Ishikawa. Most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Gifu are located in the northern region of the prefecture – in Gujo city, Takayama city, Hida city and Shirakawa village.
Various bus tours are available to Meiho from Nagoya, Gifu, Kyoto and Osaka.
