Gifu Castle, which stands on the rock at the top of Mount Jinhua, is easy to defend and difficult to attack. It took Oda Nobunaga more than ten years to travel from Nagoya to Gifu (then called Inabayama Castle). Therefore, after the capture of Gifu, Nobunaga couldn't wait to move the city here, and changed its name to Gifu after King Wen of Zhou Fengming Qishan as an allusion; This is the starting point of Nobunaga's military deployment in the world, a historical freezing point that cannot be missed. The present Gifu Castle is a 3-story 4-story castle rebuilt in 1956. There is a historical exhibition room in the castle and an observation deck upstairs. From the observation deck, you can overlook the Nagara River and the rolling mountains to the north. You can also enjoy the beautiful night view from the observation deck.
