This is a concrete castle these days but inside is a 5 floor museum of area history and armor. I think a nice visit and worth the climb inside to see it all.

We have been to many Japanese castles. This one is nothing special. It has been rebuilt and is not an original castle. It is cool, but since so many of these castles are reconstructions of originals it didn't seem special. The grounds were nice but...More

Saw Samurai swords and armour. Lots of stairs to climb. Great view from the top. Wish there were English signs and translations.

The castle is a replica, but I think it's a very good replica despite what others have said. It has several floors each with interesting Japanese historical artefacts. Unfortunately the information about the artefacts and the castle are in Japanese, but it doesn't take much...More

It is a nice castle to visit. If you are in the area might as well stop and see it. You can take pictures, see the grounds, the museum, and the top view in about one hour and only cost $2 to enter the castle.
