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.
