【Events Have Ended】 Gifu City Firework Displays

June 27 , 2017
Summer means firework displays here in Japan, and Gifu prefecture won’t let you down. There are many fireworks displays here in Gifu, and the newspaper companies Chunichi Shimbun and Gifu Shimbun hold shows that are considered to be among the largest, launching around 30,000 fireworks each.

Due to the popularity of these two displays it is recommended that you take public transportation (or walk if possible) to the viewing areas. Apart from the special shuttle buses that depart from the JR Gifu and Meitetsu Gifu Stations, there will also be buses shuttling spectators from the temporary parking lots located in Hitoichiba and the north side of the Prefectural Government building (all shuttle buses are 210 yen).

【Events Have Ended】 Special Ji-kabuki Performances in Magome-juku

June 15 , 2017
What better place to watch “ji-kabuki” than Magome-juku?

For those who haven’t heard of “ji-kabuki,” it is a tradition that started in the Edo period(1603-1883) when local commoners enjoyed “kabuki” theater performances so much that they started performing it on their own (hence the term “ji-kabuki,” or local “kabuki” in English).
So why not take an evening and enjoy the Edo-period tradition in the Edo-period atmosphere of Magome-juku?

【Dates】 Fridays 6/9, 6/23, 7/14, 7/28, 8/11
【Time】 8:00pm (duration is around 45 min)
【Fee】 Free (tipping in the form of “ohineri” is welcome)
【Venue】 Magome Shukaijo Gathering Place (next to the Tourist Information Center)
【Directions】 From Nakatsugawa Station > Take the Kita Ena Bus on the Magome Line (25min, 540 yen) > Get off at the “Magome” bus stop
【Notes】 For those who are going by public transportation please note that the last bus from Nakatsugawa Station leaves at 6:30pm, and that the last bus from Magome-juku leaves at 6:57pm so you need to either have lodging reserved or take the taxi back (2,900 yen ~ 3,500 yen)
