    Gujo Hachiman Castle is Japan’s oldest castle reconstructed out of wood. Building of the fort began in 1559 by Endo Morikazu and by 1667 the shogunate government recognized it as a castle. In 1933 the current castle tower was rebuilt with reference to Ogaki Castle at that time. The sight of the castle appearing to float in the morning mist is a spectacle to behold and is why the castle is also known as the castle in the sky. The four layered wooden castle tower with five floors has been designated as an Important Cultural Property of Gujo City.

    Originally built in 1559, this castle was torn down in 1870 during the Meiji Restoration and recostructed back in 1933. Autumn is the best season to visit this castle as the autumn leaves...

    To reach Roadside Station Kokindenju no Sato Yamato, travelers should take National Route 156 and Prefectural Route 317 about three kilometers from the Gifu Yamato Interchange on the Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway. This roadside station combines many kinds of facilities in one place, including a free footbath, a morning farmers’ market, and a restaurant that serves local cuisine, and an ice cream and yogurt specialty shop. Customers can enjoy local dishes at reasonable prices, such as Salt-Broiled Sweetfish and Wild Yams, and on the 20th of each month, Kei-chan, or local chicken cooked in a traditional style, is served. All the buildings, including the retail stores that sell local products and the restaurants that serve local cuisine, are named after a collection of ancient and modern Japanese poetry, Kokinshu, and there is even a hot spring bathing facility built in a Neo-Japanese architectural style.

    We visited the foot onsen and restaurants here twice. The restaurant in the back has delicious drinks and a wood stove.

    A hot spring bath facility located a 15 minute drive from the Minokamo Interchange on the Tokai-Kanjo Expressway. Here you can enjoy a gorgeous view of the Kisogawa River flowing right below your eyes while bathing in hot spring waters renowned for their skin beautifying properties welling up from 1,800 meters below ground. The bathhouse has eight different outdoor baths, the most famous of which is the Jade Bath, a bath carved out of raw jade, a stone believed to ward away evil and misfortune in China. The bathhouse also has a large stone-enclosed bath and “kakenagashi” style bath constantly replenished from a natural hot spring source, both of which offer a sweeping view of Hida-Kisogawa Quasi-National Park, an area selected as having the most beautiful river scenery in the country.

    This art gallery is located a 15-minute walk from Nagaragawa Railway Minoshi Station, and exhibits the Mino City’s prize-winning autumn “Mino Washi Akari Art Exhibit.” Inside the gallery, a town with udatsu walls (good for fire protection and symbolizing wealth) is reproduced in a soft and warm light through Mino washi (traditional Japanese paper). Although the work cannot be touched, you are free to take photographs. There is also a museum shop lined with highly artistic lanterns. The wooden two-stories building is a nationally registered tangible cultural property since it is a valuable structure that is as it was in the early Showa era (1926-1989).

    This museum is located about 20 minutes from the Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway Mino Interchange via National Route 156 and Prefectural Route 81. The museum introduces from various perspectives the world of Shisai style paper patchwork, with its traditions and hidden possibilities for the future, and history and techniques of Mino washi traditional Japanese paper passed down in the Mino area. The first exhibition room introduces the production areas of washi paper throughout Japan, history of washi, and papermaking technology. In the second exhibition room, they give concrete suggestions about practical uses of washi paper in everyday living spaces. In addition, you can also have a “papermaking experience” using authentic tools and natural ingredients in the workshop.

    Nice Museum located in Mino City, Gifu Prefecture. But i think it should have more papers and paper exhibits on display. They had very few.

Originally built in the middle of the Edo Period, it was reportedly expanded in the early Meiji Period. As paper merchants and the head of the village, they were extremely wealthy, and the house was the most splendid in the region. The Meiji Period addition included a three-meter skylight. The courtyard has an elegant suikinkutsu, used to make a special dripping sound, and has been designated as one of the Top 100 Soundscapes of Japan. Mino historic museum is at the back.
