If you're lucky enough to be there when the cherry blossoms are out, you'll never forget it. The castle sits at the edge of a park with thousands of cherry trees. You must see the park in the daytime and again at night when it becomes a fairyland.

The castle certainly looks nice from outside. Nothing much inside except for an elevated view of the park. Its not worth paying to enter.

You need tickets to get in (cheap). Try to get a 360 degree view of the surrounding moat and park from the top most floor of the castle. Great exterior architecture, but ho-hum interior.
