  • Too famous too, but did not go quite finally went. I visited ordinary daytime, don't budge from the middle of the night to see this sea of clouds in the early morning is famous. Take a sky bus, in addition to approximately 1 Km away. The last 50 metres is a steep slope of the heart-breaking. Takeda Castle is also on the mountain. The scenery is breathtaking. Autumn is almost ended, but at the time of cherry blossoms great views and is likely. C country of tourists was gakusei.

  • We visited at the end of December, it's snowing. Only famous as the castle in the sky is looked at from the opposite unkyo is worried about road was abandoned. Leave your car to this day the only way of walking, went to the ruins of a castle. Stop takes about 40 minutes one way, so not sure about physical person may be better. However, great views of the castle when I got good luck and before one's eyes. I feel the wind bells and whistles because it was covered with a little snow on this day. From the ruins of a castle, a variety of ways depending on the time. I'd better go check in advance.

  • Climbing for the elderly with a pamphlet of the castle was surrounded by clouds and have strength enough nobody saw. Even though you can't see views of the photos printed in the brochure, I. Once it began climbing course is one way. Making a force too weak. I thought gently greets the visitors parking and souvenir Center... with money to make money for the poor. Do not go with 2.

  • 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.
