There are some castle ruins but they're nothing special. However there is a large park surrounding it which might be a nice place to visit if that's what you feel like. Grassy lawns, sports fields, a pond, etc.

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.

It's free and good exercise but it's really just the remaining wall with 2 overlooks. If you're in the area go, but otherwise you can skip it...

The Ruins of Akashi Castle offer the opportunity to visit a Japanese castle without the hustle and bustle at any time. Because the castle is only partially preserved, the castle grounds and the adjacent castle park is spared from the large crowds usually. Only during the cherry blossom time, one should be prepared for greater numbers of visitors. However, just the cherry blossom season you should also visit the castle grounds and the castle park. The delicate pink and heavenly white cherry blossoms give this quiet place a very special magic.

We were mainly interested in visiting the Castle Ruins here but pleasantly surprised that the grounds were quite large and there was heaps to see and do. Lots of people here walking, sitting or riding bikes and the day was quite hot and sunny. We walked along the path towards the lake then up the hill to the Castle steps. It was a lovely half day trip from Kobe.

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.

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.

Though the main keep was removed, the remains of castle are nice and well preserved. The original castle is turned into a huge park, the Akashi Park, which is good for family picnic!
