We visited numerous castles in Japan. This is very well maintained but not for the faint hearted. Numerous steps both up and down so if you are tall watch your head as some parts are a bit low. Great views and landscaping. Be prepared to...More

Used to be the highest point in the city. The castle was completely destroyed in WW2 but rebuilt to its old form after the war. A good place to visit if you are interested in ancient castle.

I loved this castle. There were outfits to try on and wonderful people to help. There was a balcony to see the city.

It’s a nice castle, where you can get to the top and have a good view of the city. I will not recommend to take a boat trip.
