  • You didn't walk so much thanks to round-trip through word of mouth and read in advance and go from under the car parked 2 third parking lot. Thanks! Ready views from the observation deck of the Castle where, in this town and the sea and is a good vantage point. The beginning saw castles of this type.

  • 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.
