Takayama Castle Ruins高山城跡

Castle / Ruins of Castle

Takayama Castle is a flatland mountain castle which was built on a mountain of 686.6 meters in height. The old fortress style with its two three-story watchtower-style castle towers are believed to have been influenced by Oda Nobunaga’s Azuchi Castle. Now the inner citadel, the outer citadel and inner enclosure are only partitioned by a dry moat, and there are no buildings remaining. In 1945 the castle ruins were designated as a Cultural Property of Japan.

Gifu Main Areas


Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
