Standing Tall

Shining statue, standing tall on the ground of Gifu train station that no one will miss it once they step out of Gifu station. The station has a huge open compound.

It stands guard near the train station. Didn't check it out, it's outstanding because it's covered in gold and it's tall.

Ultimately, it's a statue at a railway station, but it is golden and quite impressive nonetheless. It's so shiny and obviously well-cared for. Not sure what else to say.

But it's really bright so you can see it from far, and hard to miss once you step out from the JR station. I think to non-Oda fans, it really doesn't mean much. (But then, why would non-Oda fans go to Gifu anyway...)

When we are go outside of Gifu station, the first thing that we can see is gold statue, Nobunaga Oda at the corner of park, so dont miss it, take picture in front of the statue.

Oda Nobunaga was a samurai warlord of Japan in the 16 th century who initiated the unification of Japan. Nice gold statue in Gifu JR train station you cannot miss it.

The statue is located in front of the station, nice to see if you know who Oda Nabunaga is specially. Nothing else around it except the station and some shopping streets. Its something you see either while arriving or going back as it wont take much of your time.
