We went there on Aug 6th and could not get into the castle because of renovation and had couple of cranes outside now and then blocking the view of the castle. However we still able to take some good pictures without cranes. There was a store renting samurai and kimono costumes for 300 yen. We had a lot of fun... More

Do not worry you are not good at Japan history, just enjoy staying at Odarawa Castle and its park. We feel peaceful and joyful here.

I was once visited Osaka Castle in Osaka and it feels like I have been there again. The Odawara castle is near the station so it was not difficult to visit. I enjoyed the Museum ,the view of the sea and the area from the top of the castle. By visiting the place , you will learn the rich history... More

Just a short walk from Odawara Station, this castle and its grounds are worth a visit! Beautiful gardens, gates, and castle. Exhibits in the castle are awe inspiring. We will be returning with family in the future.

The castle is a short walk from the station. During cherry blossom season, the street along the bottom of the castle grounds nearest the main entry is lined with cherry blossom trees. The castle has been rebuilt (out of necessity) but the museum inside is an interesting collection of eco-period artefacts and includes lots of samurai pieces. Not everything has... More

My boyfriend and I stopped by in Odawara to visit this castle after 2 days in Hakone. The castle is super close to the Odawara train station and was relatively easy to find. The museum inside of the castle (there is a separate museum with more treasures of the Hojo/Okubo clans) was nice, but would be boring for those with... More

Around 10 min walk from the station, some lovely cherry blossom lined paths to the castle. The castle itself has plenty to take in, on several floors you get a history of the importance of this site/location between the different clans. You get a good view of how close you are to the Sagami bay and surrounding area.
