Gold Statue of Nobunaga Oda, Gifu

1.3
#2 of 28 in Sightseeing in Gifu
Monument Tourist Spot
Outside JR Gifu station, Gold Statue of Nobunaga Oda, the effigy of the revered 16-century samurai warlord, keeps watch over the junction, polished to perfection and shining in the sunlight. The man you'll see depicted here was one of the first great unifiers of Japan, conquering over a third of the country on his quest. He eventually died by taking his own life as his palace was attacked in a coup d'etat, but his legacy lives on strongly here. If you visit during October, you'll have the opportunity to see an annual parade of samurai warriors in his honor. By using our Gifu vacation route planner, you can arrange your visit to Gold Statue of Nobunaga Oda and other attractions in Gifu.

  • Worth seeing if you are in the area but not worth going out of your way. Had free time waiting for the train so we went.  more »
  • Shining statue, standing tall on the ground of Gifu train station that no one will miss it once they step out of Gifu station. The station has a huge open compound.  more »
  • It stands guard near the train station. Didn't check it out, it's outstanding because it's covered in gold and it's tall.  more »
