Bordered by verdant mountains, quaint villages, and fruit orchards, the city of Gifu boasts a well-developed historic center and swift connections to Nagoya. Attractions in Gifu are plentiful, ranging from old castles, temples, and shrines, to its numerous museums, noted for their quality. Overlooked by the towering Mount Kinka, a local landmark, the cultural city also offers hiking trails for nature lovers. Things to do in Gifu include sampling its sweetfish dishes, shopping for traditional paper umbrellas, and--if you're in town from May to October--witnessing the famous cormorant fishing on the Nagara river.
