  • Did not expect to keep here as well, but as the Castle fans once... with stone wall a good it was I was very surprised. Well made exactly on the top of the mountain and I was impressed. It is also used large stones that blend stone used the stone is sandstone, carved by the sea round stones. There is embedded in the stone walls of this one, I saw for the first time. Summit Hill is best because there are good paved roads beneath the Summit can take a vehicle. Impact is currently undergoing some restoration work, but see also. However, it is likely that there are several places where floating stone wall and dangerous, so think, soon repaired. I think stone fans who went to see it even better.

  • A memorable place to visit. Little bit of walking to get to the highest point but you can see a beautiful view of the island. The castle itself is not big and you are not allowed to get in. You can observe from the outside and under the castle. It is well maintained. Good place to go if you want some quiet time and just enjoy the fresh air. A very peaceful place.
  • Steep hike up the mountain, but view is totally worth it.
  • Near the Castle so you can have in the car. It's Tower in less than 5 minutes ' walk from there. While watching the remains would rose as もったいない go up in five minutes and only lost in the splendor of the stone wall along the way. Castle says the bonus in a reconstruction of the early Showa era?.... Well it is a stone wall remains. Explore the ruins of stone fans once?. Sumoto city and sea all enjoy panoramic views from the Castle. It was a beautiful scenery. Since it was a weekday evening tourists me in person. Very helpful.
