Hachioji Castle has a lengthy history that resulted in a bloody battle that was said to be heard in the distance long after its end. What is now just castle ruins that decorate the picturesque surrounding mountain landscape has lived on in the hearts of all who have visited the battle site. Many who live near and around the mountain have reported ghost sightings up to recent years, and it is tradition for people in the neighboring villages to honor the anniversary of the castle’s fall every year on June 23rd.
