Pretty park

The walk through this park was relaxing and the cherry blossom was just coming out when we were there early April. We liked the castle itself too - worth a visit.

The castle itself is not terribly impressive, but it is pretty, and the grounds are pretty and relaxing to walk around. It's a great free activity to kill an hour on your way to Hakone.

My husband and I lived in Odawara for 15 years (1983 to 1998) and walked through Odawara Castle on numerous occasions. Great festivals there at different times of the year, a beautifully maintained castle, and lovely walks. Very close to the center of town.

I went there before I take a shinkansen for osaka. Beautiful and solemn place. A nice walk, the castle from outside is majestic, there's a monkey cage in front of the castle

The castle park also has a children’s amusement section with a small train circling that area. The castle is beautifully maintained. I saw the summer festival and thoroughly enjoyed a day there. Lots of entertainment and food booths (during the festival).

Wonderful place for quiet reflection and beauty. Trees are full of new growth and despite overcast weather we enjoyed a lovely walk. Last traces of blossoms on the nearby walkway.

There is a cage a of monkeys...

A nice walk around the castle grounds. Wonderful waterway where you can feed the TONS of carp. A Lily garden as well as many types of Hydrangeas. Peaceful and serene with awesome photo ops!

Took a ride of MTB up to hill & had a great view from hill top! There is no castle but nice to imagine it was. Next to this, there is Yoroizuka farm restaurant & shop which has a wide range of sweets.
