Gujo Hachiman Castle4.0
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.

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.

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

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.
