Gifu: recommended history trip

If you like history, the Gifu is the right place for you to visit.  Gifu was the military base camp for Oda Nobunaga, who was the most famous and most popular Samurai general at war time in Medieval ages  in japan.

 

Where is Gifu: Gifu is very convenient to go. From a bustling city Nagoya, located a central japan, it is only thirty minutes ride of rail way.  Nagoya has an international airport, and has a large railway station where almost all railways converge, including a bullet train, Shinkansen.

 

Gifu castle:  Oda Nobunaga's great castle is located on the top of the mountain. Unfortunately, the castle was fallen apart, and the current castle was rebuilt later. But you can feel what the days of Nobunaga was like if you visit there. The mountain itself is conserved, so the castle is surrounded in a deep forest.

You can climb to the top of the mountain, but you can also ride a cable train whose cost is 1000 yen, round trip. From the top of the castle, you can see the great view which Nobunaga would have enjoyed.

Shrine: Shrine is the place for Japanese people to pray for their luck. In Gifu, there is a unique shrine. The name is Golden Shrine., whose gate is gold. If you visit there, you are believed to be rich.

This beautiful picture was taken at Yamadera in Yamagata Prefecture. This is a quiet, sacred Buddhist temple build at the top of a mountain.  Climbing over one thousand steps from the foot of the mountain,  you can see the ground view.  But don't forget this is a religious place.  Pray to Buddha for the peace of the world and your own mind at the temple, and never interrupt with meditation of Buddhist monks.

 

How to go there:  From Tokyo, take a bullet train to Sendai. At Sendai, change trains. Take JR Senza line and stop Yamadera Station. (It will take about one hour from Sendai to Yamadera). From Yamadera Station, you can walk up the steps.

 

What to eat: Soba(Japanese noodle) is very famous in Yamagata Prefecture.  Around Yamadera Temple, there are several restaurants which serve Soba. Mitoya is one of the best restaurants where you can enjoy good Soba.
