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

So many historical buildings to enjoy and this site was no exception. The site is not really disability friendly but if one is up to a little walking this is certainly worth visiting.

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

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
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
