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.

  • I think because it is pretty narrow streets twist and go to a parking lot near the Castle Tower from the parking lot under the climb pretty much?. Less number of the car itself.... Lord itself is not so much famous for Yamauchi had streamers and the birthplace of his wife. There Castle Hill from the top floor County overlooking the town of gujo Hachiman. Traditional wood to crack on the top floor and had been written "in Japan" during the display. Nokyo-sho was very near the entrance of the Castle castle has been sold. (¥ 300) are interested in please. I think it is worth a visit as the size is not large, Himeji Castle and Osaka Castle,.

  • If your in hachiman you need to visit the castle, not a big castle but great views of the city. We were lucky during autumn they had late night opening for autumn leaves which was great as Gujo Hachiman is very quite at night.
  • Both the climb and the museum are worth it. The castle is rebuilt but loses none of its charm as it is reconstructed using wood like the original structure. A striking snow white color with a museum inside. This castle was also voted best castle in 2015. I can see why, The castle overlooks the town like something out of a fairly tale and the views from the top are striking. Gujo Hachiman is easily my favorite city in all of Chubu and for certain in Gifu-ken.
  • A well preserved historical building. An excellent place to have an aerial view of the town.
  • On top of the hill, provide view of the towm, 15 minutes walk from the town bus stop.
  • Historical castle. Beautiful view if you go to the top.
