On the west coast of the Chiita Peninsula (知多半島) there is Ono Castle (大野城), a cute little castle on top of a hill between Shinmaiko (新舞子) and Tokoname city (常滑市) overlooking the bay.

It is located 800m off the road most cyclists takes when touring the Chiita Peninsula and I often climb up to the Ono castle to enjoy the view before returning to Nagoya via some quiet little country roads.
