Takasu Snow Park is located in the northern area of Gujo city in the central region of Gifu Prefecture. The resort is on the eastern slopes of Mt Dainichi, part of the Ryohaku mountain range. Takasu Snow Park is lift and course-connected with the Dynaland resort and a shared lift ticket is available. Along with Dynaland, the connected area boasts 32 courses and 43km of ski courses and they are currently known as 'Dantotsu'. Some new 'tree run' courses opened for the 2017-2018 season. Takasu Snow Park has been operating since 1999.

New for the 2018-2019 season is the 'Takasu Terrace' building at the summit (1550m)... curiously featuring a beach theme. Of more interest to snow lovers is perhaps the super half pipe that they are claiming to be 'nihon ichi' (best in Japan).

Most of the 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.
