Lovely place special.... nice to see a bit of the city history, the only thing is that there is nothing in english. But still a nice place and worth the visit

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!

Go between 6.30pm till 7pm for perfect photography. Reflection of the castle in the moat is amazing!

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.
