As I know that it is not the original castle, so I plan just a short visit. It is not too far from the train station. You can walk by 15-20min. Nice environmental, no entry fee. (I didn't go inside the castle) If you go...More

the castle itself was interesting enough, but part of the attraction is a tiny, crowded, disgusting monkey cage. It was dirty and the monkeys looked miserable. Honestly seeing it was depressing and made me want a refund for my ticket. Imprisoning animals in terrible conditions...More

Nice architecture. Please wear comfortable shoes. Its a long walk from the parking area to the castle. The display was nice and informative. The view from top of the tower is picture perfect

The street next to castle is probably the best place in japan to see cherry blossom. While you can skip the castle but street next to castle is amazing. Calm and small town away from busy city; a stay overnight is definitely recommended

The Odawara Castle Park is a great spot to stroll around. The main entrance leads through different Gates until reaching the Main building after a few hundred meters. There are as well many old shops near the castle and other places to see.

Display was really impressive. The walking up was strenuous...the lifts pretty inaccessible because of the long tourist line...but the view at the top was infinitely worth the climb.

Nice rebuilt castle. Worth a visit if you're in the area on the way to Hakone since you have to change trains anyways. Nice photo op from outside. Panoramic from the 5th floor. Would have been really good if we caught cherry blossoms.

Lovely, white castle set high on a hill, so lots of steps to climb, but they're quite manageable. Besides, there's an ice-cream vendor, several vendors actually, one who sell delicious green-tea cones. There were lots of ninja warriors running around the day we visited and...More

We visited Odawara Castle on a day with heavy rain. The tourist flow was fairly light, thanks to the rain. Fortunately the cherry blossom in the surrounding park was in its prime, offering a picturesque view. The castle is very well maintained and equipped with...More

Yes there is a limited amount of parking in the Castle precinct . Think the cost was about US$10 for 3 hours or it might have been 4 hours. There is also parking about 400-500 metres away and this was where our buses... More
