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.

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!

Very scenic 400 year old historic castle. You can drive up to the door of the castle up the hill but the drive up is very very narrow and steep. We drove an 8 seater up there and the bends were very tight. we had to reverse a couple of times to make it around the bends.
There is a nice scene of the town below and a place to take photos of the castle.

Nice view and very peaceful. If you drive a big car please be careful on the way to castle's car park because the road is narrow and the driver must be careful.

Beautiful castle. Not so touristy as some other places, maybe due to very high location unreachable for big buses. Splendid views from the castle. One of my favourites in Japan.
