There some steep steps up to the observation cafe. On the roof is free. Minimum 400 yen for 2 pancakes (good) for the air conditioned area. Great view. People in their 90s are crawling to the top.

Visited Gifu Park Squirrel enclosure and Gifu Castle. The squirrels and Gifu Castle are on the mountain and unless you are quite fit the Ropeway is the easy way up.

We only have a morning to spend at the castle so we decided to take the ropeway, although it's only a 5-mins ride, it's well worth the JPY 980 (round trip, after discount. look for coupons at your hotel). I think if we hike, it...More

This is a short rope way that takes you to the Gifu Palace. Very short, journey probably takes about 3 minutes, and will cost you about 1100 yen for return trip.

Lady conductor only speaks in Japanese, I guess her comments were on the view from the ropeway? Fast ride down. Get coupon from tourist info adverts from hotel or tourist info centre.
