The park is nice and the castle looks good from afar, however you can see that the replica is a bit sloppy as you get closer. We took two tickets anyway and went inside. The interior of the castle is what one could call a...More

Just across a street from the JR station. Best shooting location is the JR station platform no.2, around the 14th-15th car parking area.

A very small cousin compared to Himeji castle. Consequently, virtually empty of visitors. ¥500 admission. Easy walk to the top tier with interesting exhibits on each floor. Lovely views of Fukuyama. The original castle was destroyed in WW2 so this is a replica.

The castle grounds is medium in scale but it's relaxing to walk around anytime of the year. The castle grounds boasts couple of historic structures of cultural importance. The reconstruction of the main keep is picturesque and compliments the wide castle foreground. It also exhibits...More
