The ruin is indeed a ruin and I have difficulty imagining how the castle used to look like. There is nothing much to see except for few walls remain. If you are visiting during spring / Sakura season, then it may be worth visiting.

We can access this place by around 20 minutes of walking from Tottori station. There is not much to see about the castle ruins, but we can see Tottori and Jinpu-kaku Hall from the top of the castle.

The remains of the moat and castle walls are worth seeing. There is a path up the hill to the castle remains on the top with a wonderful 360 view.

Lovely winter day and this was fun to explore after museums closed at 5pm. Lots of construction now. Good views of Tottori city once you get to the top. Watch out for bears! So the signs warn...

Visited when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom, and oh what a lovely sight! Blossoming trees coupled with fallen petals on the ground and the stone from the ruins; this was definitely a highlight. Saw a couple of kindergarteners on a school excursion, they...More

時を経て城壁が修理、昔の縁を偲ばせる、鳥取西高校の西側から坂道を登る。お堀の手前には仁風閣が建っている。stone walls renovating,a trail from Jinpukaku rise up to the castle tower ruins,doesnt take time.you can see a scenery of tottori city down which is good.昔 慶長より前、秀吉が籠城攻めで食料がなくなり落城した哀しい歴史あり.have a miserable history starving a garrison into surrender
