  • Gifu castle. Nobunaga's Castle. Because my friend loves history incorporated into the plan, but the scenery from Gifu castle was great! I thought it looks not like Danzig is not the physical strength, built a castle on the way. Old people are really great.

  • Castle was always looking up from the bottom, but it turned it on by ropeway and snorkeled its future greatness. It is recommended to go when the weather is nice.

  • To Oda Nobunaga Saito Dosan Ota, Mino of the warring countries, is a symbol of the current Gifu. Different from the feeling that we can climb the rope way even at warring States period as well as on their feet climb and arrived at the Castle. Castle itself was reconstructed of concrete, so let's enjoy the look.
