We have been to many Japanese castles. This one is nothing special. It has been rebuilt and is not an original castle. It is cool, but since so many of these castles are reconstructions of originals it didn't seem special. The grounds were nice but...More

Saw Samurai swords and armour. Lots of stairs to climb. Great view from the top. Wish there were English signs and translations.

It is a nice castle to visit. If you are in the area might as well stop and see it. You can take pictures, see the grounds, the museum, and the top view in about one hour and only cost $2 to enter the castle.

The park is nice and the castle looks good from afar, however you can see that the replica is a bit sloppy as you get closer. We took two tickets anyway and went inside. The interior of the castle is what one could call a...More
