Explore a castle hidden amongst the misty fog. Iwamura Castle is one of Japan’s top three greatest mountaintop castles. The castle building itself has since been demolished, but the ruins and stone walls remain, giving the area an almost mystical atmosphere. Iwamura Castle’s unique appearance makes it a must-visit even for those who have already visited other Japanese castles.

Situated atop a mountain next to the Kisogawa River, Naegi Castle is also one of the very few castles in the country to be built using naturally huge rocks, unevenly piled onto each other to form the stone wall structures. It is also a great spot to view seasonal foliage, such as cherry blossoms during spring, and admire the sunset by virtue of an uninterrupted view of the horizon.

Ji-Kabuki is a more laid-back version of Kabuki that is often performed by amateur local actors in the countryside. At the Kashimo Meiji Theatre, you can catch performances of Ji-Kabuki, wholeheartedly performed by local actors who especially love to interact with the audience. This uniquely local tradition has years of history rooted in the southeastern region of Gifu.

Jalan Sett di Ochiai
The 840-meter long cobblestone path is a designated site of historical importance. Once a common site in Japan, there are now only two cobblestone paths left — one in Hakone and one in Ochiai. The cobblestones were used to help traveling merchants, where the stones prevented their carts from slipping on the slopes during heavy rain.
