One of the nicest castles there is in Japan. You will enjoy the photo ops with that carriage and the japanese dresses for both men and women all for free! We had fun as a group posing like japanese royalty. Take note though of the...More
I've been to Okayama Castle 3 times when visit the Korakuen Garden. You can purchase a set of ticket for visit both places to save some money, it's worth to visit Okayama Castle, nice view on the top as well.
Beautiful view of the city on the top floor. They offer you to dress kimono for free, but arrive early! Nice place to go. Its ¥300 to get inside. There is the possibility for you to make pottery (but it costs extra). But honestly, the...More
We went to Okayama castle on the 29th of December. Reached the castle around 4pm only to find a notice on the door stating that the castle will be closed from 29th to 31st of December. This defers from the information on Google. But still...More
This castle is a replica of the original that was burnt down during the war. It is full of interesting history and artifacts and is next to Okayama Korakuen Garden which is must see if you are in the area.
A typical castle, not very big nor in its very original condition. Believed it has been rebuilt or refurbished so looked pretty new. Have some greens around it where we saw some nice red leaves. Castle is close to the Korakuen and can be reached...More

Okayama Castle originally made in 1597, was destroyed in the last year of WWII and was rebuilt in 1966. Thus, the original castle like Himeji Castle is a better castle. But Okayama Castle is located on the Asahi River, which was used as a moat and the more famous Korakuen Garden is located just across the river. It's easy to go to Kairakuen Garden and Okayama Castle by a bus or a tram from JR Okayama Station. You should also go to Kurashiki, and consider going to Naoshima Island.
