Museum is fairly dated but the exhibits are timeless. Armour, firearms,swords,saddles,all give insight into Samurai Culture. No interpretation of exhibits in english though which made the experience a little frustrating. Lots of stairs as you move over 5 floors to finish with a great view...More

Like Okayama castle, Fukuyama doesn't hold a candle to Himeji but if judged on its own is still a nice reconstruction that allows us to get a clear image of how the original must have been. The interior is also a museum with ancient artifacts,...More
