Visit one of Japan's oldest castle reconstructions at Gujo Hachiman Castle, originally built in 1559. Destroyed during Japan's period of modernization, the structure was rebuilt using wood materials in 1933. The five-story white-walled castle sits atop a mountain at 300 m (984 ft) above sea level. Take a short hike up to enjoy spectacular views over the old town and the surrounding mountain range. Gujo Hachiman Castle is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Gujo Edition.

  • The castle was built by a local paodel in 1559 she was destroyed in 1871 and established in 1933. The castle is located in the mountain and spectacular views of the bucolic town gōjū-ryū, who were in town and considered pure chemistry in Japan nervim mainly Japanese tourists come to town to drink water so many places there are drinking water taps, and even SAGISUI temple to honor. Everyone who travels in Japan up to the hard plastic food samples that you can order meals called SAMPURU and known as Japanese FAKE FOOD. The timan Mae is in itzorn in the past had 10 large craft today small open craft.

  • Pretty castle up the hill- you can drive most of the way if you have a car (and public transport is quite hard to use to reach this area so you'll probably be in a car). We were pleased to be handed a leaflet in English only to see that the English part only extended to the front page! Good views from the top though.
  • Loved it. Great for hiking, or just drive all the way up.
  • In autumn, it is surrounded by leaves with red, yellow and green.
  • Very beautiful area
  • Nice view from the top.

Where to stay in Gujo

Gujo's traditional Japanese ryokans, dispersed throughout the city's historic center and outer districts, boast Edo period lodgings, views of the historic castle, and an authentic taste of Japanese culture. If you're looking for authenticity on a more modest budget, opt for one of the family-run "minshukus"--bed and breakfasts offering a unique opportunity to live alongside the locals in their homes. If your trip to Gujo falls in the summer months (June to mid-September), book early as the rooms fill up during its renowned dance festival.
