Does anyone know of any nice outdoorsy day trips in Gifu... but won't involve heatstroke?

Thanks John for the insight. I did see it on your blog, but your description here sounds much more enticing.

This is outrageous! The people want to know what they're eating! Some states already passed laws requiring GMO labeling.. Now Congress has been bought off and they're passing legislation telling STATES that they can't require labeling! EXCUSE ME!!!
We have 535 little tyrants, funded by the financial elite, dictating just about every aspect of our lives. IT HAS TO STOP NOW!
The first step: TERM LIMITS FOR US CONGRESS!
With the second option of Article 5, the people and the States can supersede the authority of Congress; adding a Term Limits Amendment to the Constitution; and Congress has no authority to stop it.
Become involved! Sign the petition! Volunteer to help collect signatures, even if only a single page (15 signatures). With YOUR help, we can make this happen!

Despite the home of the Kyoto Protocol being Japan, there are significant financial incentives to tear down an rebuild. The building industry has a lot of wastage built into it, which is mainly to the financial benefit of gangster related legitimate building companies. AVAAZ has a petition right now calling on a halving of the budget for the new Olympic stadium. The old will be torn down, and half of the money for the new is said to go straight to gangster related companies.

Japan really ought to call a spade a spade.
 
Despite the evidence piling up against them, Tokyo continues its attempt to weasel its way out of admitting the fact that they forced thousands into slavery and death at the aforementioned wartime sites.
A move that′s further fueling Korea-Japan tensions
Connie Kim has more on Japan′s continued quest to distort history.
The Japanese leader says Korea has never objected to its foreign minister′s claim that the expression ″forced to work″ in the English-language translation of its statement to the World Heritage Committee does not mean ″forced labor″.
Speaking at a parliamentary meeting on Friday Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the phrase ″forced to work″ in the English version of the statement was used to convey that some of the laborers were forced into conscription.
Abe also said the Korean government made it clear that it will not include Japan′s statements in its compensation claims for Koreans forced into labor during Japan′s colonial rule of Korea.
After Tokyo′s wartime industrial facilities were listed as UNESCO sites this weekend, Japanese foreign minister Fumio Kishida sparked tensions between Seoul and Tokyo by giving an ambiguous translation of its statement to its domestic audience.
Korea′s foreign minister Yun Byung-se dismissed Kishida′s comments saying the English statement leaves no room for controversy and has been officially adopted by the World Heritage Committee.
Yun added there is no need to predict Japan′s next move because it must submit a progress report by the end of 2017 which will be reviewed by the World Heritage Committee the following year.
If Japan′s progress is deemed unsatisfactory, the sites could be removed from the UNESCO list.

Travel photographer in Nagoya, central Japan
Introduction
I'm a photographer living in central Japan in Nagoya City, the home of the Toyota Motor corporation. Nagoya is the richest and second most expensive of the cities in Japan. It lies right in the centre between Tokyo and Osaka. I often find myself going to events and festivals in Nagoya, Nara, Kyoto, and the surrounding areas.

Note, I only circle people if I can see their profiles.
