A road for cars which climbs sacred Mt. Ibuki and which starts along National Route 365 in Sekigahara Town, Fuwa County, Gifu Prefecture. 17 kilometers in length, from the road's end point at the Sky Terrace parking area, you can get a sweeping view of Chikubu Island and the Hira Mountains. Due to the differences in temperature caused by different elevations, the mountain experiences a long fall foliage period lasting from mid-October to late November, and visitors can enjoy the changes in leaves expressed at different heights. Many Japanese maples and beech trees grow around the Joheijigoe parking area 900 meters up the mountain, and many tourists from inside and outside the prefecture stop here to take in the view.
