Interesting sights outside the castle. Some food stalls are located in some areas and also some vendo machines. Rest rooms are sufficient and accessible easily by tourists.

This is not a free park, but because it costs a bit of money, it is much easier to get a spot. During hanami they have food trucks but the bathroom lines are crazy long.
