Gifu, Japan

Gujo-Hachiman Castle (castle above clouds)

Gujo-Hachiman Castle is said to be the most beautiful in the castles in Japan.
The white castle looks standing above clouds occasionally.
Gujo-Hachiman Castle is a symbol of the Gujo-Hachiman area. It was the sixth castle lord Tsunetomo Endo 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. He also repaired the Gujo-Hachiman Castle. 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.
