Erected on top of Gujō Hachiman’s nearest hill, the Gujō Hachiman Castle was built in 1559 by a local feudal lord. Destroyed during the Meiji Period, the castle was only rebuilt in 1933. Unfortunately it was not rebuilt as the original, but the Gujō Hachiman Castle comes with a wooden foundation rather that the usual concrete ones often used when rebuilding such monuments.
Offering an amazing view of the Gujō Hachiman village and valleys below, Gujō Hachiman Castle is best visited during the autumn when the leaves change color.
