For the latest information on how the coronavirus (Covid-19 disease) is affecting travel within Japan, please consult the Japan National Travel Organization's advisory page or Japan Travel's coronavirus info. Businesses across Hida City are operating social distancing and additional hygiene measures in accordance with Gifu prefecture's ordinance, so you can travel with confidence and peace of mind.
Hida is a small, rural city where you can find many smaller, independent businesses operating. While some places will accept credit cards, many do not since Japan has traditionally been a cash-oriented society. Try to find out in advance what payment methods are accepted (e.g. if staying at a ryokan) and carry sufficient cash to get through the day.
