Nice place to spend a day. Good parks around, and a good Sakura tree walk just next to it. Not as nice as Nagoya castle, but a good afternoon.

Talking of the three most famous feudal warlords in Japan, those are Ieyasu Tokugawa, Hideyoshi Toyotomi and Nobunaga Oda. Of those three men, Nobunaga is most popular, I think. He was deeply involved in this castle and made an alliance with Ieyasu Tokugawa at this...More

Castle is a thing that has been restored, but you can leisurely sightseeing. I was able to participate in the tea party. In addition, you can also see cherry blossoms in spring. However, transportation is inconvenient for the suburbs.

I didn't notice if there was taxi station but, the station staff at the gate might help you to call the taxi. The castle is not so far away from the station, it took 10 to 15mins by foot. Hope that helps!
