As far as mountain castle remains go, Takeda Castle is rare for being the most perfect in the country. Another name for the castle is ”Torafusajo” or ”Kogajo” as it appears as if a tiger is lying down on the ground. Other nicknames include ”Japanese Machu Picchu” and ”Castle in the Sky”. Many tourists visit to see its sea of clouds.
