This is a wonderful place to visit if you find yourself in the area. It is not far from a train station on the west side of town, on a quiet street. The building is not very large but is almost always open and very welcoming. Posted on the wall running three quarters around the room is the history of the statue and the man behind it. Of the four Daibutsu I have visited; this smallest one so far has the most complete, and moving, history posted in english. Part of what makes it so moving is that it is the efforts of one man that caused it to be created; not the will of the rich or powerful and it is a symbol
of devotion on many levels.
Spend a few moments Reading the tale of how this place came to be and light a stick of fragrant incense or simply enjoy the feeling of peace and calm the quiet atmosphere promotes. Leave a small donation if you want, it goes toward keeping the doors open
for others to enjoy, as you have.

Chiyobo Inari is a shrine but more interesting thing is a shopping street in front of the shrine. There are restaurants for local cuisine, Japanese sweets shops, pickled vegetable shops, etc.
It's a fun to wonder into the shopping street even for Japanese people. so if you have a chance, do not miss it.

Ogaki Castl was designated as a National Treasure in 1936. The present one is a reconstruction of the original which was destroyed during the Second World War. It is quite small but is of interest due to it's importance during the battle of Sekigahara.

Held annually in mid-August, this huge fireworks display is a joint production between the city of Hashima in Gifu prefecture, situated on the west bank of the Kiso River, and Ichinomiya in Aichi prefecture, situated on the river's east side. About 5,000 dazzling fireworks-including wide starmines, reverse Niagaras, and huge 2-shakudama fireworks, the largest in the Tokai region-are launched from the floodplains upstream from the Nobio Ohashi bridge to light up the night sky. The celebrated Makiwara-Bune ships, each decorated with about 400 paper lanterns, also float down the river during the festival, making for an otherworldly sight.

" Oku no Hosumichi" was the title of the five month Literary journey of the great haiku poet Basho. This journey ended in Ogaki in the autumn of 1689.
Though documents and haiku in the Matsuo Basho Memorial Museum are in japanese, this museum is still worth a look as it is on the walking route around Ogaki City. At a guess, the total distance for the walk would be about seven kilometes.

I visited here to enjoy seeing the wisteria that lives for more than 300 years. The bulletin board say that this wisteria stretches the branches 33 meters wide from east to west and 15 meters wide from north to south. Why don't you try a tea on the bench feeling the beauty of the wisteria during their festival? When you come to by car you can found the free parking area easily.
