Takeda Castle Ruins

On mornings when the weather conditions are just right, the ruins of Takeda Castle in the city of Asago, Hyogo Prefecture, appear to float above the clouds. The castle was built on the summit of Mt. Kojo (353.7 m) in the fifteenth century. Many of the defensive stone walls were likely built in the sixteenth century, and remain largely intact. The Ritsuunkyo Observatory affords views of the castle site from about 2 kilometers away. Takeda Castle Ruins is a nationally designated Important Cultural Property.
