Ukai and Nagara River
Ukai -cormorant fishing on the pristine Nagara river – is one of the most summer sights of Gifu City. Cormorant fishing on the Nagara River is held every night during the season from May 11 through October 15, with the exception of the harvest moon period, when river water levels are swollen.
Mt. Kinka is located in the center of Gifu City and its height is 329 meters. It was called Mt. Inaba in past times. As Gifu Castle dominates its top, this mountain was the scene of frequent military action during Japan’s Sengoku or “Warring States” period.
