Gujo Hachiman Castle soars on the top of a mountain just behind the town of Gujo Hachiman. This castle is a reconstruction and it is the oldest reconstruction of middle age castle by using wood.

You can climb up to the castle by car or on foot.

This castle is especially beautiful in late autumn aroud November because of the changing colors of the foliage on mountain slope.

If your in hachiman you need to visit the castle, not a big castle but great views of the city. We were lucky during autumn they had late night opening for autumn leaves which was great as Gujo Hachiman is very quite at night.

Both the climb and the museum are worth it. The castle is rebuilt but loses none of its charm as it is reconstructed using wood like the original structure. A striking snow white color with a museum inside. This castle was also voted best castle in 2015. I can see why, The castle overlooks the town like something out of a fairly tale and the views from the top are striking. Gujo Hachiman is easily my favorite city in all of Chubu and for certain in Gifu-ken.
