About all you can take away from the castle is a nice picture. The gardens are also pretty, but there is nothing special about this castle

This castle is much small than other more all known castles, but it seems to have recently been renovated. The surrounding park is also being renovated. Very nice area though for a stroll. Lovely city!

As with all Japanese castles you can stroll around at your pace and view the exhibits. A great view from the top of the castle. A pleasant area around it to sit and relax.

I liked that you can walk around this castle for free, but it is an obvious recent build and does not have much authenticity about it. I would recommend walking around in the evening as the sun sets and enjoying the peacefulness of the surrounding park and coy pond.
