Visited the castle on a recent trip with my family to Japan. The grounds are fun to explore and really beautiful. The Walk through the castle is a great cultural and history lesson. Most everything is in English and if it isn't Google translate can...More

This was one of the least interesting castles I have seen in Japan. It's not bad and you will enjoy it, but it's not worth any extra effort to see unless you've never seen a castle in Japan. It was also pretty crowded with foreign...More

A very good spot in a wonderful and quiet park. The museum inside the castle is worth a visit as it describes the prosperous history of the region and the House of Shoguns who controlled the castle. The park is free and is located nearby...More

As I know that it is not the original castle, so I plan just a short visit. It is not too far from the train station. You can walk by 15-20min. Nice environmental, no entry fee. (I didn't go inside the castle) If you go...More

the castle itself was interesting enough, but part of the attraction is a tiny, crowded, disgusting monkey cage. It was dirty and the monkeys looked miserable. Honestly seeing it was depressing and made me want a refund for my ticket. Imprisoning animals in terrible conditions...More

Nice architecture. Please wear comfortable shoes. Its a long walk from the parking area to the castle. The display was nice and informative. The view from top of the tower is picture perfect

The street next to castle is probably the best place in japan to see cherry blossom. While you can skip the castle but street next to castle is amazing. Calm and small town away from busy city; a stay overnight is definitely recommended

The Odawara Castle Park is a great spot to stroll around. The main entrance leads through different Gates until reaching the Main building after a few hundred meters. There are as well many old shops near the castle and other places to see.

Display was really impressive. The walking up was strenuous...the lifts pretty inaccessible because of the long tourist line...but the view at the top was infinitely worth the climb.

Yes there is a limited amount of parking in the Castle precinct . Think the cost was about US$10 for 3 hours or it might have been 4 hours. There is also parking about 400-500 metres away and this was where our buses... More
