Gifu Castle 岐阜城
Gifu Castle is located in Gifu Park in Gifu city, on the top of the 300m-high Mount Kinka and was formerly known as Inabayama Castle. Gifu Castle was originally built in the 13th century.
During the Warring States Period (Sengoku Jidai) Gifu Castle became the residence of Dosan Saito (1494-1556), a ruthless adventurer, who rose from prosperous merchant to become the dominant warlord of the region. Dosan was killed in a coup d’etat by his son Saito Yoshitatsu at the Battle of Nagaragawa.
