From a distance this castle looks very big but, once you have walked the path up the hill to the castle, it is quite small. But the view from the top is awesome and well worth the walk.

Wonderful! The walk to the castle through the trees is beautiful. Once at the top you can see almost all of Gujo- Hachiman. The creaky floor boards really make you think about what it might have been like years ago. Must see.

Because the road is not built for coaches to travel on, we have to literally walk up to the castle, located about 300+ metres above sea-level. However once there, you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the old town of Gujo Hachimanjo.

From the city center, it took us about 20-minutes to hike up the mountain-side to see this feudal castle. 310-yen for adults, 150-yen for kids. There is a small museum. But the view from the castle is beautiful! Worth the hike.
