Castle & park dated back to the 17th century. Very nice Japanese garden. If you want to take the postcard photo with the corner tower, you better get in from the East entrance.

If come to Takamatsu, you can't leave without visit the Tamamo Park. It has interesting points to learn, and you can also do fun things like feeding the fish during a boat ride around the sea water around the ruins. Unique experience!

If you are in Takamatsu, the park is worth a look-see, a short walk from the train station. There you will see the ruins of the Takamatsu Castle, one of a few castles in Japan with water moats, a photo op of your trip. I would not consider this a must-see.

Not the best park in Takamatsu. If you wanted to see the castle, you could see it and photograph it outside. Inside is small and boring. I would not recommend it as a must-see place in town.

We had some time to kill while waiting for our flight, so took a stroll through this peaceful, extensive garden/park. There was a Chrysanthemum festival on at the time and the displays were incredible. The entire park had only a few visitors walking through it and it was an oasis of calm in the midst of a busy regional city.

This park is just opposite the hotel I stayed in. At the beginning, I had no plan of going there because the castle was demolished already. As we had some time near the end of the trip, we got into it. Oh, it was nice to get around. It has very traditional Japanese buildings and landscape design.

The location is very convenient, it is near takamatsu pier and kotoden station. The price of the ticket is quite cheap compare to other tourist spot, it is only 210 yen. However, part of the garden is under renewal. To be honest it was not much to see, you can't enter the castle, but there's a balcony that when you're... More

On its own merits Tamamo wasn't that bad, but I can't help but compare this to Ritsurin park, which is far better in every way. However it was extremely easy to get to, being right across the street from our hotel and two central train stations. The most beautiful part was an inaccessible Japanese garden that we could only see... More

Fun and nice park in the middle of Takatmatsu. 200JPY entry, and we spent at least an hour looking around. It was very interesting, and you were able to feed the fish in the moat which was heaps of fun and good for kids. I wish they had more info on what the old castle looked like, what was inside...

Having spent most of my (working) trip to Japan in very busy cities, this was a lovely place to wander around and chill out after arriving in Takamatsu. The entrance fee is inexpensive and the gardens very beautiful.
