First of all, speaking of the Nobunaga Kakure exhibition in the precints of Gifu Castle, I managed to find more informations and pictures about it!
Right after it, followed the exhibition of original plates of the manga "Sengoku" by Hideki Miyashita, one of my favourites, that will be up until September 28:
Also, it was finally released the Nobunaga-themed recipe booklet Nobunaga-ko Ikusa Meshi:
The result can be found here, where you can download the original recipes as a PDF file!
Speaking of the new events that characterize this summer dedicated to the shining glory of our Nobunaga, they've been collected under the Gifu Nobunaga Natsunojin motto:
The first event is the Nobunaga Gallery that we mentioned above.
It was inaugurated on July 13 and it's already celebrating its 10.000th visitor!
Yet, the most stunning feature of the Gallery is the real life size, hyper-realistic statue of the Nobunaga portrayed by Hideki Takahashi in the "Nobunaga" taiga drama of 1973:
If you wanna check it out, the Gallery will be up until 17 December at the Gifu Mediacosmos. The entrance is free.
Next, it's the turn of another interesting Gifu Nobunaga Exhibition, this time hosted by the Gifu Historical Museum:
The exhibition will be up and running until August 20. The ticket is 1000 yen.
Next, a special event dedicated to encourage the visits to Gifu castle at evening, Gifu-jo Yagai Gentou: special LED projectors illuminate and decorate the area of Gifu castle, to give it a special mood:
Even if the event is free to access, one is supposed to pay for the ropeway trip and the castle's entrance.
Last but not least from June 22 to September 3, the Gifu Mediacosmos area is going to host the second edition of the Gifu Nobunaga no Rakuichi of this year:
As Nobunaga was a huge fan of sumo, the yearly sumo provincial tour gets its dose of Nobu as the Gifu Nobunaga Basho:
The location of the event is the Gifu Memorial Center.
We end this short but juicy report with our usual anime goods!
On August 12 at the Juuroku Plaza Hall is scheduled a talk-show dedicated to a new arc of the popular "Detective Conan" TV series set in Gifu!
The special guests are seiyuu Minami Takayama, the voice of Conan, and the chief producer of Yomiuri Television Michihiko Suwa.
The entrance is free, but it's limited to 600 visitors and it goes through postcard submission!
And it's all for this season, see you on Autumn!
