We need to take the ropeway from Gifu park up to the Kinkazan and then walked uphill for 300 m. to Gifu Castle. The castle is not large, but still is 4 storeys high. At first I didn’t expect much, but when I walked up...More
The small park at its base is quiet and pleasant for contemplation, especially when the hydrangeas are in bloom. The views from the cable car and castle are expansive, the walk invigorating. The squirrel park was unfortunately closed.

The view from Gifu Castle is formidable. One can imagine the vision of Oda Nobunaga from the top. However, the exhibits inside the Gifu Castle are not as attractive as you may find in other Japanese castles. However, the fare is just 200 yen, so...More
We took the cable car up the hill and the Meditation Trail back down which was beautiful. Because the castle is high on the hill & surrounded by trees it is hard to actually see the castle, but the view is incredible and the walk...More
