Ogaki is famous for mizu-manju, a sweet, jelly-like snack that's filled with red bean paste. While it's primely served in the summer, it's available from late spring. You'll find it at a stall on the main road south of Ogaki station.

Get out[edit]

Gifu City is 10 minutes away by train (230 yen), and has about 400,000, making it the go-to "city" in Gifu prefecture.

Nagoya is definitely a good city-getaway if you feel suffocated by the ample countryside of Ogaki.
