The ruins of Takeda Castle is called the "Castle in the Sky" of "Machu Picchu of the East." They are truly appropriate names because the image of it floating above a sea of clouds, and gleaming in the light of the early morning sun in autumn is extremely beautiful. It's beyond description. The "Castle in the Sky" can be seen from Ritsuun-Kyo on the opposite side of the ruins of the Castle.
The ruins of Takeda Castle changes in appearance with the season: cherry blossoms in the spring, fresh green in the summer, a sea of clouds in autumn, and snowy scenery in the winter.
As it stretches 400 meters from north to south, 100 meters from east to west, Takeda Castle is listed among the 100 Fine Castles in Japan. Takeda Castle is said to have been completed in 1441 and was built at a height of 354 meters, by Shozen Yamada. By 1580, the Castle all but fell down and only the stone walls remained.
If you're lucky, you may see the castle floating in a sea of clouds from Ritsuun-Kyo in autumn.
It takes almost five hours for a round trip from either Kyoto or Osaka, but it's worth seeing it.
I'm sure you'll enjoy the 40-minute hiking and the nature in the cool autumn breeze.

Hideo is a great guide. His English is good and he knows the site and sites well. He also moves quickly so you get to see a lot. Using trains and buses you also get a feel for the city. We walked about 10 mines during the day but with the stops etc. it did not feel difficult. I was very pleased with Hideo.
We love Mr Hideo so much. We are family of 12 and he was able to managed us very well with his prepared tour itinerary. He picked us up from our apartment and guide us all the way through the scenic spots using local trains. Highly recommended! Thank you so much Mr Hideo :)
We had two separate tours with Hideo. One for a full day to Osaka and another to Hiroshima. Hideo is very thorough in his planning and well-organized. He plans everything in detail but at the same time is very flexible according to our interests. He gave us good advice and ideas while proposing the itinerary. He is punctual and knows the cities well. He is also humble and patient and very hardworking. Thank you Hideo for bringing us around!
Hideo is a pleasant man, very knowledgeable as you would expect of a private tour guide, and ultimately made our Kyoto stay every memorable. We had a great time visiting the must see places as we only spent 3 days 2 nights there, so we decided to make the most of the with Hideo. We'll be back to Japan again and we'll be sure to book with Hideo once more!
We spent 5 enjoyable days with Hideo in Osaka and Kyoto. He was well organised, puntual, patient and flexible with our plans. He was particularly kind to assist us in any way we required, and was a pleasure to get to know during our stay in these two cities. A big thank you, again!
