Owner description: Once the largest castle in Japan when originally built in the 1580s, this castle has an observation platform with city views and a history museum that uses holograms, 3D pictures and other technologies to describe the history of the castle and the period during which it was built.

You get a feeling for the significance of this place by the extent of the precinct gardens and the massive moat surrounding it.
The original castle was built nearly 500 years ago, today’s version is a precise replica. We took the elevator to the top for the view, then stopped at each floor on the way down the stairs to view the history and see the various exhibits.
It is beautifully presented and easy to navigate. Certainly worth a visit.

The moats around the castle are impressive as are the height of the walls.
You can walk the 6 flights of stairs to the top lookout or use the lift
The exhibits and the story of the Castle and the times is well worth it.

Beautiful facade and grounds. Nice displays of its history and it’s 8 stories high. You can wait in line for the elevator or take the stairs. We chose the stairs and it takes you to museum displays on that level until you reach the top. I thought the set up was great.

The castle stands proudly and boldly in the city with gardens and moats surrounding, yet it is easy to get to. It is hard to take a bad picture here, and free access to the door for everyone. Take the time to walk around the castle and explore the parks
