Bordered by verdant mountains, quaint villages, and fruit orchards, the city of Gifu boasts a well-developed historic center and swift connections to Nagoya.
Change things up with these side-trips from Gifu: Ceramic Park Mino (in Tajimi), Ibigawa-cho (Tokuyama Dam, Mount Kanmuri Trail, & more) and Toki Premium Outlets (in Toki). Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Gifu Castle / Inabayama Castle, pause for some photo ops at Marriage Monument of Yamauchi Kazutoyo and Chiyo, head outdoors with Naoko Takahashi Road, and make a trip to Gyakusuitoimon.

For traveler tips, maps, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Gifu road trip planning site .

Manila, Philippines to Gifu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Manila to Gifu due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Manila in July, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Gifu: temperatures range from 33°C by day to 27°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Gero.

Hidden high up in the Japanese Alps, Takayama remained largely cut off from the rest of Japan for centuries, allowing the local culture to grow in relative isolation.
Get out of town with these interesting Takayama side-trips: Shirakawa-mura (Shirakawago Gassho Zukuri Minkaen, Shirakawago Gasshozukuri Homurajin Museum, & more) and Hida (Ikegahara Wetlands Area & White-Walled Storehouse City and Seto). There's lots more to do: get a sense of history and politics at Takayama Jinya, take some stellar pictures from Shinhotaka Ropeway, snap pictures at Kita Alps Ohashi Bridge, and explore the world behind art at Hida Takayama Museum of Art.

To see maps, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Takayama tour itinerary builder .

Getting from Gero to Takayama by car takes about 1.5 hours. August in Takayama sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
