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.

  • 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.
  • Very beautiful area
  • In autumn, it is surrounded by leaves with red, yellow and green.
