Here is a map for the route from VIO shopping mall to the view. You might see the castle in the sky between november and april from dawn to 9 am. Vio shopping mall is about 3 km far from JR Echizen-Ono station 40mn on foot.

Echizen Ono - castle, shrines and temples.
May 2019 • Couples
A one hour train journey from Fukui.

We came to see the famous market, but apart from three
old ladies, the place was deserted. Apparently those who
ran the market have either retired or died. Going by the
large number of cemeteries in such a small town, probably
the latter!

The castle overlooks the town and is a 20 minute walk.
There is a winding pathway, with stairways at various
points which provide shortcuts to the castle.

The castle itself is fairly small, but sits on quite impressive
stone foundations. Very good views of the town below.
Attractive castle in a beautiful setting.

Take care if you come by train - check the timetable for your
return journey - there is a gap of up to two and a half hours
between trains, so your day needs careful planning.

The Castle in the Sky
Apr 2019 • Couples
The castle is on a hill so it appears to float in the sky on foggy mornings. It's beautiful during all seasons, but especially during the spring and fall. There's a small museum inside and a great view of the town and surrounding mountains form the observation deck.

We read up on its history and a number of reviews and then found the official website for the castle. Disappointed we could not get to see it or enjoy the described panoramic views of the whole valley town.

越前大野城[福井県、大野市]Echizen-Ōno Castle (Ōno, Fukui Prefecture)
Oct 2015 • Couples
Echizen-Ōno Castle was first built in 1576 when Kanamori Nagachika, loyal retainer of Oda Nobunaga and tea master, was appointed Daimyou. The castle burnt down in 1775 and the keep thereafter was not rebuilt, though other buildings were. The castle structures were tore down by the Meiji government after the restoration. At that time, Lord Doi was lord of the castle. He was the last chihanji (a latter day governor in the Han System). The current structure dates from 1968. The two-storey donjon is a concrete reconstruction. The surrounding town has many old buildings and retains its Edo-jidai (era) atmosphere. Though the keep is concrete, they went to a little effort to give it a wooden feel from the inside out, which I appreciate. This mountain-top castle is most popular in the Japanese consciousness as surrounded by clouds, though when I visited it was mostly a clear day.
