    Even if you think you want to go, the last location. Was 2.1 km, 40 minutes from the parking lot, location, 30 minutes. Castle stone is fine and was often spectacular scenery. Also want to go in a different season!

    We went by car. Township of parking my car, and from there went by bus to the ruins of Takeda. We recommend to take the bus fee is ¥ 150 was uphill so. Getting off the bus and walk. Also drew a very sweat since midsummer. My bus is on the way back downhill until the village of 帰れました, easy walking.

    Nice place. A 150 yen bus ride up from the car park plus a 700m walk. Great views from the top.

    Honestly i thought it was average. Takes ages to get to and besides the view isn't a lot there. Himeji is lots better.

    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.

    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.!
