About Gifu, Japan

Gifu (岐阜県) is a landlocked prefecture in the interior of Japan's largest island, Honshū, bordered to the north by Toyama. Gifu has a diverse topography, ranging from tall mountains in the north through hilly regions to a plain in the south. Much of Gifu is too cold for growing tea, but tea is grown in some areas of the region.

Historically, this was a major agricultural region, and also important in making traditional paper, but in recent years its economy has been dominated by automotive and aerospace industries. The region has a large portion of arable land, and is also important in forestry.

Only a small amount of tea is produced here.
