(3.9/5 based on 35+ 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.

  • First I jumped from the low rocks, triangular rock, sunlike rock school bridge, became interested in gujo Hachiman (see tourist information), courage seems to be trying soon jumping from Shinbashi and higher order trigger at the 飛びこみ scene from the Shimbashi suspense drama, just once actually in this field make sure only wanted to. (More childish) explore the pretty town is waterway Temple Castle and the range is wide, and the hourly in the county on Hachiman Expo Hall-dance performances it is not to be missed. (Gujo-Odori is a pattern) is strolling around town and waterway craftsman kajiya-machi, town houses and Yanagi-Cho Machiya group after seeing although Biwako Canal at the end "Japan supplying" No. 1 of the eons (also known as Baiyun water) to was mysterious. Site including meals in the Temple Tour (there is) about 5-6 hours enjoyed.

  • Fewer cars and people visited at the end of the year, so most shops are closed, it was quiet. Sound of the old signage, waterways and river flow. Was very nice.
