This was my local park when I lived in Gifu. It was a really beautiful place to spend the spring/summer days relaxing and watching the world go by.

Gifu-koen is quiet and well kept with some ponds, a fountain, lots of trees and is home to the cable car station giving access to Mount Kinka. It's not a patch on some of the gardens i've visited, but still makes for a nice place to wander. Has a weird insect museum too. Free to get in and Y210 on... More

The following message that he uttered at that time is well-known to people. As if I was stabbed to death, democracy never be killed. I like this park that is quiet and in good state of... More

There is really nothing much at this part. There is a insert museum, a few trees, a few small food outlets, and a rope way station to the Gifu Palace, nothing else to offer.

Quiet, Well kept and very pleasant to walk through. Japanese to me are places that please the eye and stir the senses just as Gifu Park does.

A pleasant park. That's about it. Good point to "recombobulate" before ascending GIfu Castle.Good for orientation to nearby attractions.

Wonderful and peaceful during winter. Lovely place to walk and admire the beauty of nature. From there, take the ropeway to GIfu Castle. Nice place to hike up and enjoy the beauty. Don't go if the place has too much snow. Might be dangerous to climb up the stairs.

The park is magical and there are no words to explain its beauty :) Nice to walk around, maybe grab a sandwich there and take some photos. Each second I spent there is imprinted in my memory.
