Gifu city is located 30 km north of Nagoya. Unlike the plains of Nagoya, a large river flows through Gifu city and at the top of Mt. Kinka (金華山/Kinka-zan) rests Gifu Castle. Unique features include high-rise buildings and city lights that run from the foot of the mountain. Mt. Kinka's observation deck (金華山展望台/Kinka-zan tenboudai) overlooks Gifu city. The view of the scenery and landscape is marvelous. If you are coming by car be aware the road closes at 9 p.m. So if you come by train, going to GIFU CITY TOWER 43 in front of the station is recommended for the view.
