This is the ruins of a mountain fortification which is said to have been built approximately 1,000 years ago in the middle ages. Hideyoshi Toyotomi also stayed here in 1587.
At present, a mountain hiking course has been established and maintained, which allows for even beginning hikers to reach the mountain peak in about 1 hour.
