    Ready sumoto city and sea views from the ruins of a castle, the view is best. To climb but there quite challenging. The elderly may be a little tight. But there is great sense of accomplishment when you climb ^ _ ^

    Car was about 10 minutes away from the hotel. Castle is built, what was used to reproduce is a thing, but from the top of the mountain overlooking the city of sumoto. Please stop by when you come, come to the sumoto.

    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.
