Gujo Hachiman Castle

Gujo-Hachiman Castle is a symbol of the Gujo Hachiman area. It was the sixth castle lord Tsunetomo ENDO(1628-1676) who built the basis of the present town centered on the castle.
He diverted water into town, moved temples and divided the town into 8 areas such as Kajiya-machi for blacksmiths and Shokunin-machi for craftsmen.
He also repaired the Hachiman Castle. The “old town street” that has been preserved with great care has a beautiful atmosphere that gives visitors a sense of calm and comfort.
The water flowing in the canal is very clear. Old houses in the area have been beautifully maintained to preserve their historically accurate appearance, adding a special touch to the atmosphere of the site.
