The most famous spot in the Tajima are is without a doubt the Takeda Castle Ruins (竹田城,Takedajou), located in Asago city.
The castle is called "The Castle in the Sky" and many people come here to see fantastical scenery.
The beautiful scenery is shown at the beginning of the video.

We recommend stopping by Mikobata Senkoujo in Asago city.
Amarube Viaduct (余部橋脚, Amarubekyoukyaku) “Sora-no-Eki” was built in the Meiji era (1868-1912) and it was used as a JR Sanin Main Line train station for about a century.
Looking at the Sea of Japan from the Amarube Viaduct makes for a refreshing experience.
