Matsukura ruins trail guided hiking tour 

Let's go out for a hiking and a historical walk in the mountain standing silently at the west of Downtown Hida-Takayama.
Only a step away from Downtown Takayama.
An easy trekking tour stipulating your imagination for the history of Hida region.

Matsukura Castle only lasted for 7 years when the nation was in the state of war in the late 16th century.  On this tour, you will hike through the main gate to the back gate of the castle.  The ruins of the castle are spotted along the trail, which would make you wonder what the area was like back in old day and the local guide will help you interpret the history along the way.  At the top of the mountain, you will enjoy an open-air tea ceremony hosted by the guide.  This is a trail of 4km/2.5mile in length and 250m/820ft difference of elevation.  Everyone including even very beginners can enjoy this tour.
