Gujo Hachiman Castle is a mountain castle located on top of Mount Hachiman in Gujo Hachiman, Gifu Prefecture.
The castle was rebuilt in 1933 using wood rather than concrete.
And it is also a famous spot for autumn leaves viewing for being surrounded by lots of maple trees (momiji) which turn the area beautiful red during autumn. It is truly a magnificent sight.
The Momiji Festival also features traditional Japanese cultural events such as taiko drumming, fire gun performance, sword dancing, and more.
In addition, during the festival, Momiji trees are illuminated after sunset to 9 p.m. Enjoy seeing stunning autumn foliage along with one of the best reconstructed castled in Japan!

Gujo Hachiman is a great 400yr old castle with lots of history to tell you. You can reach it via car (with parking lot) or walking through a beautiful nature trail. The place itself offers a variety of pretty sceneries, some historical objects distributed through 3 floors (it can be very boring for kids thou). Bathrooms only in the parking lot. ENJOY!

The castle could be half an hour uphill walk from the town centre. Taxis weren't that many, luckily we were in the Tourist information office at that time and the friendly staff managed to book one for us.. We found the Castle was not that interesting, however, the view of Gujo Hachiman town from above made the visit worthwhile.

Beautiful castle in Takayama known as Gujo Hachiman. Excellent drive up to the door step of the castle. It's a one way street up to and down from the castle and a small compact car is preferred!
