A Castle Sat High Upon the Mountain and Squirrels
Located high atop the Mount Kinka, centered in the middle of Gifu City, sits the home castle of the premier shogun of Japan's Warring States Period, Oda Nobunaga. Connecting Gifu Castle to the ground below, there is a ropeway to save you from the arduous trek up the mountain. If you should happen to be interested in hiking to the top, however, it is a manageable climb. The peak of the mountain, along with its scenic view of the surrounding area, is a popular date spot amongst local couples. At the foot of the mountain, Japan's first "Squirrel Village" can be found as well. The area makes a great destination for a road trip too.
