Perched on top of a hill and dating back to 1585, Iga Ueno Castle was once the site of a 16th-century three-story castle. Today, find a three-story white-walled structure where inside you'll find a museum featuring items such as a woven hat, a traditional tea jar, and samurai relics. A 30 m (98 ft) wall was built around the original castle during the early 17th century, and since its construction it still holds the record as Japan's tallest castle wall. You can walk around the complex and still find the walls standing strong. Using our custom trip planner, Iga attractions like Iga Ueno Castle can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Lovely walk around the grounds and castle and exhibits in the castle itself. Very peaceful and tranquil, amazing to know this was built hundreds of years ago and still standing! more »
Beautiful! Adult entrance ticket into the castle at ¥500, it is free to roam at the park to admire the exterior architectural feats.
It's like a museum, there's a lot of stuff, painting, and you can take a photo with "Taiga" the cute mascot, and experience climbing to the upper floor, and experiencing the cramped stairway, because it's really a true castle, there's not many spaces. Nice experience.
