    People have lived in the MINO plain from near and introduces the history, culture and local products. Saito Dosan's still speaking of MINO, Japan, Oda Nobunaga at warring States period is visited most often, interesting. Booth music rakuza policy under streets have been reproduced, and out in the store, mixes with the people at that time (although plaster) of citizens ' mood and business experience. Was a typical Japanese meal rather than Western-style meal with Nobunaga Nobunaga also had been restored, but liked the Western-style attire, such as grilled fish and boiled (@ __ @;). In a short time without time, video screening in the panorama exhibit booth alone, history of Gifu's-go can know. Exhibition Street reproduction than non-shooting.

    Knowledge of the history of Japan was put in high school, but after a quarter-century, has a considerable weathering that knowledge. Who has just learned that the history of Japan, Japan history buffs to enough without much knowledge may be Oda Nobunaga's age mainly from ancient times until modern times history of Gifu serial learn. Japan history of student learning by rote to the Romans was informed and was untouched. I think I went, very friendly and helpful.
