  • The castle is amazing. It is in pristine condition. I visited the market located inside the castle and everyone, including the staff were very nice. You can enjoy yourself and queue up to look at the rooms in the historical site. There are guides and maps everywhere in the area so you won't get lost. There are facilities located in the main entrance. I consider this one of the most beautiful castles in Japan.
  • While lot of this is rebuilt after a fire in WW2 it is a look into Japan's past. Didn't get a chance to go inside the buildings as we were too late in the day. Grounds are interesting to explore. Went back for nights markets and a audio visual show, no English audio so didn't understand but it looked good.
