We walked from Momoyama JR station up the hill and through a new path in the middle of the forest for about 15 minutes to this sensational looking castle.
There was only a few people about and this was in Golden week. The colours are...More
Difficult to rate from the outside with crowds of tourists milling around. At first glance, it's a modern concrete reconstruction of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's Momoyama castle. Hideyoshi was born poor so when he became Shogun, he just wanted to be surrounded by gold. A replica of...More
Its very big castle and it looks beautiful during Skura. I'd say that you should get there by 8:30-9 to avoid getting in the tourist queue which is the main downside. Main downside is that the interior of palace is stripped clean so when you...More
I came to Fushimi Momoyama Castle for the splendid view, it makes for a spectacle. There's no entry, so there's lot to do per se, but it's so peaceful and there's nothing in the way of crowds. Getting there from the station wasn't too much...More
Fushimi Momoyama Castle is closed to public, and the visitors can only take a look from outside. Although the building itself is not the original, it recalls the glory of the past time. The mausoleum of the emperor Kanmu is nearby. You can visit it...More
I traveled to japan off season in January and while i was here there was literally no one else there. No entrance fees, no tourists... just me and the castle, so i walked around, had a nice relax and after went by long walk through...More
We went to this castle the same day we went to Fushimi Inari and the sake district, and we absolutely loved this place, it was one of our favorites on the whole trip. It's not the type of place you can walk through the castle...More
My father found this castle in his guidebook, which was apparently published just months after the park was closed in 2003. His book showed photos of a bustling, vibrant park, but when we got there, it was mostly empty. There was a Japanese family there...More
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
