Gifu— 8 nights
Bordered by verdant mountains, quaint villages, and fruit orchards, the city of Gifu boasts a well-developed historic center and swift connections to Nagoya.Your inner history buff will appreciate Gifu Castle / Inabayama Castle and Mt. Garyu Gyoukiji Temple. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Inaba Shrine and Mt. Kinkazan Squirrel Village. Change things up with these side-trips from Gifu: Nagahama (Kinomotojuku, Doganji Kannondo, & more), Inuyama Castle (in Inuyama) and Hikone (Ruins of Sawayamajo Castle & Tenneiji). There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Dodogamine, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kogane Shrine, enjoy the sand and surf at Tanoura Beach, and get to know the fascinating history of Stone Pavement In Ochiai.
