  • Takeda station the morning eight units arrived. Leave their luggage lockers in the station towards the Takeda Castle, climbed the mountain trail approximately 900 meters. Arrive at the ticket office in 35 minutes. Was quite steep, so a break along the way about 4 times. Enter from the main gate, the entire castle about an hour walk in the Park. Weather is the only stone castle, the spectacular view of the surrounding. Early in the morning was perhaps travelling less slowly in a quiet old 偲bimashita. Return is gradual over 40 minutes, was descent on foot.

  • Climbed in the morning came up in the ruins of Takeda unkyo (clouds, clouds are not visible), put the car in the free parking taking lunch at taketa station, climb takes about 25 minutes from the train station behind the trail, the weather is not good, is started cold, 1 return was much better weather arrives at the Castle while we take off one climbed in around 25 minutes by the time the cherry blossoms came to the best season in full bloom, seems to think the stairs more than the table rice shrine trail, was about 20 minutes 降りれました Here is the sea of clouds see 4/10 is heard later was 1 hour and a half of hiking, but want to try during the autumn clouds easier.

  • AM 10:00, arrived at Castle Village parking lot. Weekdays 1 h 1 holiday bottle in 30 minutes, 2 150 yen halfway up a bus stop there. Our time could take to bus everyone lined up somehow. Mountain road and then on foot, about 10 minutes (it comes in reasonably overlook steep) in 10 minutes will take you to the top. Castle in the sky in the picture look better is basic in this route, from the town area routes in the early fall is as good. I heard that today too early in the morning of the 4/2 rare clouds are seen. In the steep mountain road have many climbing but was told it is older and out of breath, so is fine. In its own way and enjoyed shooting spots. After one awesome cherry slow week because of shame, that. On the way back was down and go road bus 150 yen on foot got out. 12:00 reached halfway up the bus parking had lot of people at the bus stop, couldn't get all but two buses. Halfway up the bus is a small souvenir shop and restaurant, at the restaurant we ate that original care Bowl 1,080 Yen with Oyako-Don and Tajima beef Sukiyaki fixtures got poached Seymour are both good.

  • Micchu Pichu of Japan, very pretty. The weather was hot when I was there but sky was clear and you can see afar from the top of the hill. Would like to come when it is a little bit foggy.
  • Wonderful, amazing and beautiful place. This place is really amazing, that village below this ruin castle is really quiet and very clean, and also a lot of traditional house.!
  • Location is a bit out of the way but definitely well worth the trip. We travelled here from Himeji on the train and enjoyed the view of the mountains along the way. The walk up to the castle doesn't take too long but is quite steep. The view from the top is amazing and worth the effort. Unfortunately like most popular tourist attractions the place was full of tour groups.
  • Absolutely stunning view, even though we went on an non-foggy morning. Excellent place to visit while nearby.
  • Beautiful old ruins of the castel with a great view of the valley.
