The castle ruins are nice to walk around, but they really are ruins. You do get great views of Shingu City from the top, and it's a nice picnic spot. Tip: One of the best times to visit is in the evening, when the hanging lanterns are lit up.

Few steps to climb up here but nothing dramatic. The grounds are peaceful and a nice place to stop and sit on a warm day. Just wander through, enjoy the views across Shingu. No entry fee.

Absolutely beautiful view and many cherry blossoms. Wonderful to see at night with all the Japanese lanterns! Great place for a picnic. The actual castle isn't there, but the ruins and base of it are. Just know that it isn't really touristy. It's more the 'locals' kind of spot. EXCELLENT views!!!! Not crowded at all.
