Long pillow Word shortly afterward is the Gifu city and Florence is that the sister-city relationship and will available to the realization of the exhibition will be held in big cities like Tokyo. General exhibit room on the second floor very often duplicate the shooting spot is three and the below average. 1 picture of the Gifu Park. Free parking is a dry riverbed. Public transportation is convenient.

  • Because it's a long walk from Fucheng, so come here and see. When there was a vincy and Migoange, it was a wonderful time to see the usual exhibition of Gifu's history, which was included inside. I didn't think it would be interesting, first of all, to speak English, at least to know the approximate information of the display. There was a mentor who was very careful to introduce me, although it was not easy to communicate, but he wrote the words to let me understand. He was very warm and took me to try on the kimono, but because I didn't have much time and declined, let them disappointed very sorry! And then there are small activities are very interesting, not after their own such a big, also embarrassed to participate, the children should feel fun!

  • The Museum of history located at the foot of Mt. Kinkazan, Gifu Park. Introduces history from ancient times to the present day Gifu. In particular caught the eye is still about Castle in Gifu Nobunaga era exhibition. Kids clothing experience and full-scale restoration of the music city can enjoy as is was.

  • Staff go by feel, was the lowest. Upset, I went back. As you'd expect, city officials? This is the epitome of bureaucracy. Embarrassing as the Gifu city. Parking is distant and small unit, no go.

  • Located in Gifu Park. Its magnificent museums. Surroundings are lush and the atmosphere is very good. Located in Gifu castle atop Mt. Kinka in the above. A calm flow of the Nagara River is ideal. How to take a bus from Gifu station while away for good. You can use parking adjacent to visit by car, access might be.
