Karatsu Castle Reviews
입장료는 뷰값입니다. 일본인이 아니면 사실 성안에 설명된 내용은 의미없습니다. 뷰가 정말 좋더라구요. 아무생각이 들지 않는뷰 more »The entrance fee is the value of the view. If you are not Japanese, the content stipulated in the castle is not meaningful. The view is really good. I don't think it's a good idea

Very pretty castle on top of a hill. I went during winter but I saw that the were wisterias vines on the entrance which i can imagine to be quite breathtaking when it blooms. but regardless of the the season the castle is beautiful. It is located on top of a hill surrounded by water. It makes a great photo from the bottom as well as the top.
the castle grounds are beautiful. it was a bit difficult to get to the top as we could not find the elevator and ended up taking the stairs (i have a knee injury). on the way down we did find the elevator but it was closed. the castle closes at 17:00 and we were rushed out, but you can enjoy the grounds until 18:00. sunset at the castle was lovely, so depending on what you want to do it may be worth going in the late afternoon.
