The view of the Gujo Hachiman castle town from the keep above is not to be missed!

Gujo Hachiman Castle’s story begins towards the end of the Warring States period when, in 1559, Endo Morikazu established it as his stronghold.

In 1871, with the abolition of feudal domains and establishment of prefectures in Japan, Gujo Hachiman Castle was demolished the following year, leaving only its stone walls standing. Presently, all the stone walls of the castle are designated as important historical properties of the prefecture, and the castle keep is designated a municipal treasure.

From the castle keep, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the castle town and the mountains of Okumino all at once.
