The traditional walk up Matsuyama castle hill. I must admit it is steeper than it looks. There are switchbacks every so often. It is a beautiful walk but it is designed to fatigue any invading army before they reach the top and I can attest to that. There is no safety side railing so if you were close to the edge and not careful, well, it is a steep decline. The walk way is well maintained by people attending to the castle grounds.
