This castle is small but lovely. Great for families because children can climb the steps and go out onto the observation deck. The views of the surrounding city and mountains was spectacular! Their is a 550 JPY fee.

Make the time to visit this castle. Kids will love the stairs and tower. It's still privately owned and is a national treasure. The town is friendly, quiet, and offers great shops and food. We walked from the train station the castle.
