(3.9/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Gujō Hachiman Castle is a yamashiro, or mountain castle, located on Hachiman Mountain in Gujō, Gifu Prefecture, Japan.HistoryGujō Hachiman Castle was built in 1559 by Endō Morikazu (遠藤盛数). Morikazu had barely finished the castle when he died, leaving it to his son Endō Yoshitaka. Yoshitaka later became a retainer to Oda Nobunaga and the direct control of the castle fell into the hands of Inaba Sadamichi, who renovated much of the castle. Yoshitaka returned to rule the castle following the Battle of Sekigahara. The castle was expanded following Tsunetomo's appointment to the castle in 1646. In 1870, during the Meiji Restoration, the castle was torn down during Japan's attempts to modernize. In 1933, it was reconstructed out of wood.

  • Surrounded by mountains around, the whole town atmosphere. Is good to stop walking, to explore the town. Parking fee is 500 yen much, much cheaper. Was the water of rivers and canals, and CARP swim in the Canal side street. If two or three hours you can explore the town. Going up the road from the town to the mountain and Castle will. While walking is also a lot of local delicious food in the shops, it was eating. From high speed Internet is the town soon.

  • County-dance and think anyone speaking of gujo Hachiman. Children to dive in the River from the top of the Bon Festival dance and sweetfish fishing and bridge. It has become a hot topic only talk of the summer. However, domestic tourists has increased recently, tourists from China as well. Tourists in winter 20 years ago almost didn't see the food shops and souvenir shops in the always welcome that. Good also strayed from the road map is unclear, even though it is small town also can be determined immediately to be tired. -The Castle stands on top of the mountain. Easily accessible by foot, but is so tired just by looking at. Located near the Tokai-kanjo Expressway road, such as County on from the interchange in five minutes in the parking lot car stopped. Nagaragawa railway, so recently will be featured on the popular television show.
