There are always fun things in Japan if you pay attention to your surroundings. It seems the locals always know how to bring out the best of what they have. Castle ruins are not usually my thing but we had fun feeding all the hundreds,...More

Interesting place to walk around, not that much to see per se but the whole area itself is very nice to wander through as the park is next to it and the general Japnese aesthetic is nice.

Unless you want the long walk and hard climb, don't bother. It's not worth the while to get to the top and see nothing much of the ruins.

Nothing interesting to see here unless you want to kill time by sitting around the park. There's a Japanese garden/tea house you can visit for a fee.

There is really not much to see. I expected to see at least the location of the castle, but I could not see it. However, it would be very nice to have a jog there.

Apart from historical significance, this is a great area to relax. .take in nature and get some exercise if wanted. Especially moved by the statue / memorial to "fathers of Tokushima"..

The beautiful stone walls and part of the moat are all that's left but that's enough. Especially when the cherry trees are blooming. You can also climb the hill - by dirt path or steps - and have a nice view of the city and...More
