日曜日(7月1日)に、古稀庵に行く途中、立ち寄りました。 橋(御茶壺橋と言うそう)の横に蓮池があるので、夏だから咲いているかと立ち寄ったのですが(朝8時ころ)、まだ咲いていませんでした。 8月ころになれば、咲くのかな? (Webサイトを確認したところ、7月中旬~8月中旬だそうです) ちなみに、御茶壺橋には、こんな感じで鯉が大量発生しています。 天守閣ですが、6~8月の週末と祝日、8/13~17のお盆期間中は営業時間が9時~19時(入館は30分前まで)だそう。 お堀端通りの堀では、鯉だけでなくあめんぼもいっぱい発見できました。

The park is a park, nothing al that special, but the bridges are really nice I think. There's a newly built smaller bridge, which is in a natural wood color. Not sure if they intend to paint it red like the others but I really...More

The park was really pretty, and was actually reasonably quiet. It was quite nice to use to go on a relaxing walk after seeing the castle.

The walk through this park was relaxing and the cherry blossom was just coming out when we were there early April. We liked the castle itself too - worth a visit.

The castle itself is not terribly impressive, but it is pretty, and the grounds are pretty and relaxing to walk around. It's a great free activity to kill an hour on your way to Hakone. Tips: Odawara Station has large lockers where you can store...More

My husband and I lived in Odawara for 15 years (1983 to 1998) and walked through Odawara Castle on numerous occasions. Great festivals there at different times of the year, a beautifully maintained castle, and lovely walks. Very close to the center of town.

I went there before I take a shinkansen for osaka. Beautiful and solemn place. A nice walk, the castle from outside is majestic, there's a monkey cage in front of the castle

The castle park also has a children’s amusement section with a small train circling that area. The castle is beautifully maintained. I saw the summer festival and thoroughly enjoyed a day there. Lots of entertainment and food booths (during the festival).

Wonderful place for quiet reflection and beauty. Trees are full of new growth and despite overcast weather we enjoyed a lovely walk. Last traces of blossoms on the nearby walkway.

Visited 1st week of April and the cherry blossoms were gorgeous! Short walk to the castle. The castle itself was closed for repairs during our visit, but the grounds we're open to explore with food and ice cream vendors- with cherry blossom ice cream available....More

Odawara Castle Park: worth taking a 1-day tour on 6 Apr? (3 Replies)
I am considering taking a 1 day tour from Shinjuku to Odawara Castle & Laka Sagami Resort for Cherry Blossoms on 6 Apr. Would it be too late for the Hanami season?

Thank you for your reply. We will skip Odawara as we will be in time to see the cherry blossom in Matsumoto and Takayama in mid April.
