Hike was manageable on gravel terrain, about 15-20mins. Overall, worth the trip up. View was fantastic on a clear day. Castle was closed during new year period, hence there is not a lot of crowd that would obstruct photo-taking.

A crowd lesser compared to the city siblings like Himeji-jo and Osaka-jo. Its completely made of wood and very well preserved for a 3 level castle and it's located up in the hill, thus driving up would be the best choice

A very cool castle that went under reconstruction in 1933 and it is regarded as the oldest reconstructed castle, the entrance fee is around 400 yen or you can get a ticket that also allows entrance to the museum as well for 750 yen which I think is worth the price of admission. The view is especially beautiful from the top floors of the castle.

A beautiful castle on a hill watching over Gujo. Parking on the top parking spot can be quite difficult to get to with a big car. So be warned!

The castle could be half an hour uphill walk from the town centre. Taxis weren't that many, luckily we were in the Tourist information office at that time and the friendly staff managed to book one for us.. We found the Castle was not that interesting, however, the view of Gujo Hachiman town from above made the visit worthwhile.
