    Travel / Tourism
    Gifu Pref. Enashi Oichou Okudo 2709 - 104
    Ena Gorge Cruise, which offers a choice of high-speed jet boats or traditional covered barges, takes passengers on a round trip to Shinanoji (“Three Squares”) Rock, the point at which the Tsukechi River flows into the Kiso River. Passengers can see rock formations looming over them on either side of the riverbank, including Battleship Rock, Lion Rock, Screen Rock, Three Squares Rock, and other oddly shaped rocks and stones, and watch migratory birds fly overhead. The embarkation point for these cruises is located about 10 minutes by car from the Ena Interchange on the Chuo Expressway.

Gifu Areas


Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
