After visiting many castles in Japan, it was a pleasure to visit one with an intimate feel. There are some exhibits on a couple of floors, but not enough to make it feel more like a museum than a castle. The view is great, and the rock garden in front is spectacular.

The castle association in Japan released the 101-200 castles for stamp rally, and this is one of them. Nearest from Kansai Airport it is easy to go by Nankai Railway. The castle itself was rebuilt in modern time, but the garden and the view from the top is beautiful. There are also some introduction on the history of the feudal lords who built it and ruled the area originally.

We walked around the moated castle joining with groups of friendly early morning dog walkers for a convivial morning chat. The castle is beautiful and only takes 10-15 minutes to walk around if you just want the exterior views. It is minutes walking from a large temple and the Gofuso gardens. Well worth it!

Well, since i haven't researched this sightseeing spot and historical place before i went to see it, i was so positively surprised what I had seen. The castle is big, and whole area is offering a lot to do and see when you are there. A couple of nice and famous restaurants(including Italian restaurant with the view of the castle itself), nice running and walking paths and quite impressive historical spot as you can see on the images.

天守閣、お堀とたたえる水、それを取り巻く緑、それらがきれいに保存されているのは、ありそうでない。岸和田市は南大阪で唯一、その中心部に美しい城をもつ誇らしい街である。You can reach Kishiwadajou Castle in 10~15minutes from Kishiwada station of Nankai Line.
