Similar to other Japanese castles although is authentic since it has not been rebuilt since construction in 1500's.
No moat as built on a hill but not to streneous a climb.

“Awesome authentic castle”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

It is small, but it is authentic and beautiful. The steps inside to get to the top are quite steep so be very careful. This castle is a gem to be appreciated by all who appreciate such things and whose beauty can be recognized by all. I highly recommend taking the time to visit this site if you have the opportunity. There is not much of a park around the castle, but this also lends to a cozy site with small numbers of people.
