This post is a long time in the making, but I hope you'll forgive me. A couple years ago I had the opportunity to visit the Kakamigahara Aerospace Science Museum (各務原航空宇宙科学博物館). From the first time I saw the advertisment for the place, I really wanted to go, so I was quite happy to finally be able to visit.

So, I know what you're thinking, "Why Kakamigahara?"
Actually the aviation industry is deeply rooted in the area; the Gifu Airbase of the Japanese Defense Force is in Kakamigahara and the city is home to the oldest airfield in Japan (built in 1917) and Kawasaki Manufacturing. But the place's history is only part of the reason why I think it's such a great tourist destination.

There are all kinds of planes on display inside the museum (especially planes that have a connection with Kakamigahara), test aircraft, aircraft used for practice maneuvers, and more. Besides that, you can learn about famous Japanese and world aviators and engineers, principles of flight, the launch of satellite rockets, and the Mars Rover. You can also try out the flight simulator (provided it's in operation)!

There are planes on display outside which you can tour, a picnic area, and a playground for the kids.

ACCESS: 15 minutes by bus from Meitetsu Shiyakushomae Station (名鉄市役所前駅)

I had lived in Gifu City for about two years before I visited the Gifu City Museum of History (岐阜市歴史博物館). Even though I had been to Mt. Kinka and Gifu Castle several times, for some reason, I just hadn’t ventured into the history museum that stood, quite literally, right before my eyes. Eventually, I was given the opportunity to help train volunteer guides who would be introducing the area during an important event. And guess what the first location on the list was. That’s right. The Gifu City Museum of History.

Cursing my good luck at having been assigned a new and exciting place, but not having any prior experience upon which to draw during the training, I participated with my eyes and ears open. It’s a good thing I did too, because Gifu’s history is actually pretty interesting and where better to learn about it than a museum. I have it on very good authority that they specialize in things like that.

In the end, experience is the best teacher and my formal introduction to this museum put it squarely on my list of recommended spots in Gifu City. Heck, I even took my mom and grandma there last May. Needless to say, we all had a great time. The Free Market (Raku ichi raku za) exhibit was a hit and the main exhibit hall was interesting and informative. This place is definitely worth your 300 yen and you can’t beat the location!

Gifu City Museum of History is a public history museum located at the base of Mt. Kinka in the heart of Gifu City's sightseeing area. The museum primarily focuses on the history and traditional crafts of the surrounding area (lanterns, umbrellas, and fans made from Mino-style Japanese paper) and includes a recreation of a free market, the likes of which were established by Oda Nobunaga, a leading feudal lord of the 16th century who resided at Gifu Castle. There are also many hands-on exhibits (kimono dress-up, etc.) and the museum often hosts special exhibits that cover a variety of themes.

TRAVEL TIP: Gifu City Museum of History , Gifu Castle, and Mt. Kinka are best experienced as a set.
