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!

What an amazing place - not just the temple itself, but the view and the forest around it, amazing to visit. So pretty and mysterious. The people are really friendly here, and quite helpful. I can’t remember what you said to me, but it was nice. Highly recommended

This castle features amazing architecture and some unique features like the different shaped gun ports along the walls. You have a spectacular view of Hachiman from here and there are several hiking trails that connect with other locations nearby.

Beautiful castle which even has an exhibition inside (and a 360 view of the surrounding city and mountains)

Beautiful place to visit, especially in the Autumn/Fall. We'll worth a visit.

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!
