Since we had some extra time, walked to this castle, near train station. The castle was okay, lots of walking up & down stairs. Lots of info in Japanese. But the grounds was great. There are monkeys roaming in a cage. Large fish in the moat. They would jump out of the water. and near this area, lots of small places to eat. I happened to find a sushi place frequented by the locals. The servers don't speak English, so just point at the pictures in the menu. Food was great, and not that expensive. Better than Tokyo. …

We spent 3 days in the area of Kanagawa, the first day walked to the rope car via the harbour. We walked around the castle, that walk opened up a day trip to the Oshima islands as well as viewing FUJISAN from the water. Which was spectacular.

Nice place for some history. View from top is great overlooking the area. A lot of the interior and exterior has been renovated and is not original but is still amazing

Came to visit Odawara to see friends and visited the castle and chrysanthemums accordingly. In days of yore the city was an important staging post between Edo (then Tokyo) and Kyoto. Still has trappings of that period and castle and Museum are well worth a visit.

It is a large park outside of Odawara castle, a nice place to seat down before or after going to Odawara Castle, one of the buildings in the park had an exhibition called "The Spirits of Samurai" which although small it was very interesting.
