A beautiful japanese castle up in the mountains, with good views of the surrounding towns. Theres also some exhibits inside the castle, and you can climb up to the top of the main keep (steep steps) Its a long hike up from the town center, but it could also be accessed by car.

There are no restaurants, food stalls or souvenir shops in the castle grounds or on the trail going up. There are some tables and benches in the castle grounds, so you can sit and enjoy the amazing views.

A steep climb to the castle, but worth the hike.^.^ Prepare a good walking shoes if you park the car down below the hill.

Beautiful castle situated at hill top, have to walk upscale to the castle. You can see the beautiful landscape of Hachiman city and river.

Way smaller than expected. It's nice in it's own right, but in no way stands out from any other castle in Japan. Not worth the drive.

The scenery is breathtaking especially in the fall when leaves changes..
