Please enjoy the former appearance of the mountain castle, which has been reconstructed based on historical materials and ruins.

Hyogo Prefecture boasts one of the highest number of castle ruins in Japan.
Within Hyogo Prefecture, the Nishi-Harima area in particular is home to a wealth of mountain castles that are unknown nationwide but are very worth seeing.
The ``Go to the Yamashiro in Nishi-Harima'' app was born out of a desire to help people learn about the charm of the Yamashiro in Nishi-Harima, which is only known to those in the know.
The Nishi-Harima area is made up of the following municipalities (Ako City, Aioi City, Kamigori Town, Sayo Town, Tatsuno City, Shiso City, and Taishi Town), and this app will show you carefully selected mountain castles in each municipality in order. Let me introduce
