  • Lovely hike up the hill to Aida Nobunaga's charming castle's. You'll enjoy great views of Gifu from the summit. 
  • In I lit at night and running fast is a small castle on the top of the mountain, but also looks good. Leave your car at the parking lot of the Park, riding (300 yen) went (1,080 Yen round trip). Quite a climb up the stairs. Admission to Castle puts in the Museum at 200 yen. On the Castle stairs to the 3rd floor. From the Castle Tower is a wonderful Vista. I could defend it because there is nothing to be interrupted no opponent come even better, because it looks I ~, and history to not prominence was.

  • Its a pretty cool castle and the hike is really fun. It would be better if only the castle was all original but sadly it isn't. It's a great view of the city also. The weirdest thing about the whole place is they have a 5 star bathroom at the top!!
  • What a great place to visit with a wonderful view.
