  • I had the chance to visit the castle ruins just when the cherry trees were in full bloom. There were dozens of cherry trees on the site and literarily hundreds more around it. The cherry blossoms...  more »
  • As historical as Japan is, rivalling Europe, there is very little left of the history of Japan to explore. The fact that this castle (dating from 1609) is in ruins and is still a prominent tourist...  more »
  • The ground are open to the public during hours and it's free to enter. If you want to do the tour of the interior you have to pay admission. It's a great place to watch the sunset ad view the town from. There is a elementary school next to the castle and the sounds of children playing can be quite soothing or irritating depending on your personality or mood.
  • (Visits 1) (Castles: 50+). Its a trek to get out here. Its not really on the way from anything. Its not close to anything. I came from Osaka by train, which I guess it nice that its even possible. Some ruins are by car only. Even from Osaka it was over an hour on the train. Then a bus. So about 3 hours round trip if you discount waiting times just to see.... not much. The town was quaint and nice. I feel like there was a lot of little things to see in the town, but I did not know that until I got there. There were bicycles for rent so people were going this way and that on little red bikes. The castles ruins themselves where not that much to look at. They had a museum building to go into, took about 5 minutes to very slowly walk through. You could finish in 90 seconds. 400 yen to get in. No English anywhere in town or the castle. Even the pamphlet with castle info as Japanese only.
