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.

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!

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