It was built in Kanonji CastleMt. UmbelThe altitude is 432.9 m, and the height is considerably tiring to climb by walking because it exceeds 300m.

It is said that it is the founder of Rakuichi who is famous for Nobunaga, although it is a hexagon that was made to the tree edge in Oda Nobunaga.
It is said that Kanonji Castle itself influenced the castle building of the castle. It is true that these castles have many common points in the place, the building, and the thought.
Such Kanonji Castle, although it is very popular for the castle lovers, because it is in the opposite of the very famous castle and eyes and nose as the castle of Oda Nobunaga, it is regrettable that the attention is lowered in general by all means.
Even though there is so much to see and do, there is not enough information to guide the entire castle in a day, so preparation is indispensable.
