We visited on a cool day and were surprized by the tranquillity that this park and castle ruins presented us with. The Sentry Towers were in very good condition, and were surrounded by tranquil, impressive gardens. there was a lovely moat filled with Koi, Swans and turtles. There was a Café and toilets, but the highlight was the grounds and the impressive Akashi Castle Sentry Towers.

Akashi castle is not famous or gorgeous as Himeji castle but it has its charms. The castle never had a donjon, and the two towers are the original ones. The structure was damaged by the 1995 earthquake but has been fixed. The towers are open during the weekends from 10:00 ~ 16:00, no entrance fee.

The pruins are situated in a park full with local citizens walking in peace withe therir families. There is a guide that gives you a description of the place, in my case in elnglish. The castle ruins are very close of the train station. We'he stoped after we have visited Himeji. The view from the top is nice. There are not souvenirs shop or tourist info zones.

Visited the ruins on a warm afternoon. Several families were having picnics but was quiet compared to USA. Very beautiful and spotlessly clean. Enjoyed a good 40 mins stroll around. The ruins are in good nick and the ponds with wisteria in bloom were breathtaking. Definitely worth an hour of anyone's time.
