Mount Dainichi (大日ヶ岳 Dainichi-ga-take?) is a mountain located in the cities of Gujō and Takayama in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. It is part of the Ryōhaku Mountains and has a height of 1,709 m (5,607 ft). The rain that falls on the mountain flows into three rivers: the Nagara River, the Shō River and the Kuzuryū River.
In pre-modern Japan, Mount Dainichi formed part of the border between Mino, Hida and Echizen provinces. Originally located in the village of Itoshiro in Fukui Prefecture, it became part of Gifu Prefecture during the "Great Shōwa Mergers" in 1958. It was first part of the town of Shirotori, which was later merged into the city of Gujō.
