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.

  • Green, was walking in the Woods feel. I had people up on a bike, walking is good. In the beautiful fall foliage, fall foliage season is you want to go. A nice 360 degree view stretches from the Castle Tower.

  • Expect is a county on the Hachiman castle called Castle in the sky, but we went early in the morning, but unfortunately it was fine. Beautiful castles, great vantage point. We walked from the parking lot of the hillside, but a little tough summer.

  • 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.
