  • Leonardo x went to the Michelangelo exhibition. Less picturesque, but there were a lot of line-drawing was indeed impressive. Many exhibits of Leonardo's notes are really thinking about these kind of things during this period, was designed and was surprised. Gifu's history is exhibited on the second floor, and sometimes wear a kimono and can immediately display that can be fun.

  • Located in Gifu Park. Admission fee is 300 yen. Can the warring was Oda Nobunaga from the primitive age, knowing the history of Gifu until World War II. Might be nice to families with children, so you can wear the kimono of the warring States period.
