Odani Castle, Nagahama
(2.9/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Odani Castle was a Sengoku period mountain-top castle located in the present day town of Kohoku in Higashiazai District, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. Only the ruins remain today. It was the home castle of the Azai clan and the mountain it was built upon was considered to be impregnable. However, the castle fell during Oda Nobunaga's siege in the Genki and Tenshō eras (Siege of Odani Castle).SignificanceOdani Castle is regarded as among Japan's Five Greatest Mountain Castles, along with Kasugayama Castle, Nanao Castle, Kannonji Castle and Gassantoda Castle. Now it is one of Japan's nationally designated historical ruins.

  • You would wait in the area and the distance from the foot of a mountain guide station by bus, on the bus doesn't fit station. No close to the coffee shop and eat it. Kawake station station guide unaided bicycle at the station and especially summer in pretty tight. No it at the unmanned station on the station Cafe and food station.

  • 100 in meijo visited. Never come again maybe, I thought, climbed up an authentic fortress ruins. Climb thought the equipment up there is no need even for people including professional trekking style shoes around the euro. I was one for hiking shoes, it was sweat.
