In the clouds we go! The beautiful scenery of Takeda castle in Hyougo prefecture.

If your Japan travel guide is just to explore Japan but don’t want to stray too far from a nearby bus or train station, then planning to go to Takeda castle in Hyougo prefecture might be the perfect spot for you. Everyone in their Japan travel guide should have some sort of climbing involved, with all the mountains in Japan and all. What better place to add to your Japan travel guide than a castle in the middle of the clouds at top of a mountain? It’s relatively easy to get there, with buses from the nearby station take you straight to the parking lot near it. From there, climbing to the top should only take you 30 minutes through the paved walkways and (a lot of) stairs and arrow that show you where you go. Easy, but great little walk to an awesome spot you should add to your Japan travel guide!
