This entire area encompassing Oyada Shrine is filled with giant maple trees that set the valley ablaze in brilliant autumn colors. The valley is designated a National Natural Monument, a title befitting its beauty.
Also counted as one of the 33 best locations in Gifu to appreciate the colors of the fall season, Oyada Maple Valley pits the striking colors of the leaves against the elaborate worksmanship of the architecture and engravings of the shrine, creating a fascinating contrast that should not be missed!
