標高329mの金華山の頂上に位置する城。名だたる戦国武将がこの城を拠点にしようと戦いを繰り広げた通り、この城からの眺めはとても素晴らしく、肥沃な濃尾平野を一望できる。晴れ渡る日には名古屋の方まで見渡すことができ、また山自体が急峻で攻略しにくいことから、戦略上重要な城であることが伺える。戦国時代を語る上で欠かせない歴史構造物であるものの、展示品は関連性が無い、もしくは薄い物が多く、さらには現代作家が描いた戦国武将の絵画が展示されていることが多いため、発掘された遺物等の展示の期待は避けた方がいい。歴史の展示物を鑑賞するならば、麓の歴史博物館をお勧めする。 途中までロープウェイで行くことが出来るが、勿論麓から徒歩で行くことも出来る。天候が安定して脚力に自信があれば、挑戦してみるのもいいかもしれない。また夏季は夜間でも登城出来る(22:00まで)。岐阜城からの夜の岐阜市内や名古屋を眺めるのも、いい思い出となるだろう。 The castle is located at the top of Mt.Kinka with an altitude of 329m. As Sengoku warlords such as Oda Nobunaga fought in order to base this castle, the view of Nobi Plain from this castle is very wonderful! On sunny days, you'll...More

As it was raining, we could hardly see the whole exterior of the castle and certainly no view at all. (I think even on a clear day, one also cannot get a good view of the whole castle as it was built at the top...More

I really enjoy visiting the castles of Japan. I enjoyed my trip up to Gifujo also, but not really because of the castle itself. Inside they have a fantastic, although small, display of arms, armor and items found from the original. The view at the...More

Worth a visit when in Nagoya/Gifu. The park at the base is lovely, and the view from the castle is great! Probably the best view from all the (8) castle I had visited so far.

I think I paid around 1000 Yen for an adult round trip ticket on the cable car October 2016.
