Classic layout of a Japanese castle and built by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Very interesting for al of us wanting to know the layout of Japanese castle though after sengoku. Very peaceful and interesting.

My husband and I were staying in Kofu for 3 nights for a wedding nearby Kofu. It was recommended by my son and daughter-in-law who had been to the castle on their last visit to Japan that we check out Kofu Castle located in Maizuru Castle Park. It was a short walk from our hotel and not far from the JR train station. There is no cost to enter the grounds. When we arrived, we were approached by a volunteer who offered us an English pamphlet and explained a little bit about the park and castle to us. He told us it takes approximately one hour to walk the entire grounds. We strolled around and enjoyed the grounds although never made it up to the castle. When standing on the bridge, a large school of huge fish and their babies immediately arrived under the bridge, so I take it people must come there to feed them! There were clean public washrooms on site. When we exited the park, we took an exit that brought us to a shopping district and a large department store.It is a nice way to spend some time if you are in Kofu and a nice place to take some pretty photographs.

The cherry blossoms were really gorgeous. Sometimes it was having a sakura snow rain when the wind blew. It wasn't appropriate moment for me as the castle was under maintenance. I was a little bit upset about this.
