Takeda Castle Ruins Reviews
雲海の竹田城を見るなら、秋‼️9月～11月がベストらしい。ただ。春の桜もキレイだろうなぁ～ 今回は、突然の思いつきで行って見た竹田城。雨の日だったけど一生に一回は行くと良いって思うよ～ 7時～タクシーが動き、 10時～バスが出る。 季節によって入山時間が違い、今の時期は6時～。 歩いて40分山道を登るので靴が必須タクシーもバスもほぼ山頂⁉️それでも歩くけどね(^-^; 500円だったかな⁉️チケッ... more »If you want to see Takeda Castle in Unkai, autumn !️! Simply. The cherry blossoms in spring will be beautiful, too. It was a rainy day, but I think it's a good idea to go there once in a lifetime - 7o'clock taxi moves, and the bus leaves at 10. The time of entry varies depending on the season, and the current time is from six o'clock. Because I climb the mountain path for 40 minutes on foot, shoes are required taxi and the bus are almost at the top of the mountain?️ but I still walk (^-^; 500 yen!? I buy a ticket at the ticket machine and pass it to my uncle and walk further up, so i don't see the scenery ❤️ i don't see ⛰️ and see the whole picture here (laughs) If it's not a sunny day, i'll pay 400 yen if the impression is thin, but it's a disappointing day.
GWに訪問したので混雑が凄かったです。麓で駐車場に車を停めバスで城付近まで行けますが、バス停からも結構歩きます。眺めは悪くない。石垣しか残っていないので建物等は期待しないでください。向かいの立雲峡から竹田城を一望できますが、ここでも駐車場からそれなりに登ります。いい写真を撮りたいなら望遠レンズが必須。私のカメラ75mmまでのズームレンズでしたが、いい写真を撮るならもっとズームしたい。 more »I visited GW, so the crowds were amazing. You can park your car in the parking lot at the foot of the parking lot and take a bus to the castle, but you can also walk from the bus stop. The view is not bad. Please do not expect the building etc. because only the stone wall remains. You can see Takeda Castle from tateunkyo across the street, but you can also climb from the parking lot here. If you want to take good pictures, a telephoto lens is a must. My camera was a zoom lens up to 75mm, but i want to zoom more if I want to take good pictures.
Breathtaking sight of being surrounded by clouds while only being 300+ meters high. Come early morning in autumn for the most beautiful "sea of clouds". The castle ruins also add to the majesty of the whole experience.
I decide to go for the combination of the view and exercise/hike. It is a short hike to the castle but there are other trails close by. The place wasn't too crowded when I went but I am sure that is probably different when it is warmer outside. There is like one train per hour. For example, I arrived a quarter til the hour and a local train fell on the half and the express on the next hour. Both getting me back to Himeji at the same time. So, plan your time getting back accordingly. I killed time by grabbing a late lunch one street over. The place was not on Google maps but pretty tastee.
