Tarui is a city in Gifu Prefecture, near the prefectural border with Shiga Prefecture..

Get in

Tarui is served by Tarui Station, located along the Tokaido Main Line. All trains from the west depart from Maibara and this is the closest Shinkansen Station to Tarui. To the east, if you time it right, there are direct trains from Toyohashi that travel through Nagoya and Gifu, but quite often a transfer at Ogaki is necessary.

For drivers, Route 21 is the main highway that runs through Tarui from Sekigahara to the west and Minokamo to the east.

Get around

There are some suggested walking routes to sites for those who enjoy walking, but for those who want to see multiple sites in the area, you can rent a bicycle at the Tourist Information Center across the street from the station. There are also infrequent buses to the Takenaka Jinya (except Sundays) for those who wish to visit but don't want to walk or bike.
