  • In an elevator, Museum staff. I didn't remain of the Castle. Even the castle itself was a top prospect.

  • The castle is a poor reconstruction of what was perceived to be originally there. The original stone walls and moats which protect the area are fantastic and are in themselves the only original featur...  more »
  • Atami Castle for the first time I went on the aerial tramway. Cableway is surly staff did not feel better but fine-staff is often in response to good. Description was running every 10 minutes, but in fact some were moved from the people. Arrived at the top of the aerial tramway, passed by in the building, building exits to the outside on the stairs through the rising next to the treasures on. There are no elevators and escalators for the heavy bags are suspect. Atami Castle at the entrance to the now quite a steep hill to climb from outside the building. You better keep an eye on the hands is the person pushing the stroller and tires on really steep gradient because baggage travellers. It is also dangerous for not specifically there are sidewalks, small children are in the car very careful not. Front entrance to Atami Castle and restaurant cafe on the left, grass terrace and Café in either all-day dining as is has. Here is belted seating for children provided and requested dinner menu for children in the 1-year-old child. Travellers can children eat my spaghetti asked. Pretty thin noodles so children eat was like. You can look at Atami Castle and on each floor every theme, very narrow grounds is around. There was no what seems just too funny. Views on the top floor is very good, excellent photography. Also helpful is the article history of the castle of Japan and the Tōkaidō. Athletic square basement game room and a baby for the last stop, let the children returned. Feel much goodness as Atami are nice, the children enjoyed the athletic square with space lot toddler can walk. Cherry Blossom is beautiful and might have been better. Ropeway tickets show in Atami Castle ticket office and makes 100 yen discount. Think of small carriers and rucksacks, go leave a game Center in the adjacent to Earth welcoming large locker also good. There was rocker ¥ 500 and ¥ 200. Atami Castle attractions there was not good enough, so more the history of Japan, for example, featured in the fairy tale, at that time living over or reproduction, such as is made enjoyable. It is unfortunately too narrow inside the Castle.

  • It was built in the 50s, so not much history, more of a project of a local wealthy man. But nevertheless the views are very good and it is worth a visit if you are in Atami. The price is a little expensive, but it has a nice collection of the best castles of Japan in a small scale. The basement has a bizarre collection of old nudist art, to say it softly. If you don't want to pay the ticket, you can always go to the small gardens on the left that have a restaurant for a coffee or an icecream, nice views from there too.
  • If it's about view then this place has got an amazing ocean view, by far the best view we have seen so far here in atami. The castle is great on architecture, you may offer prayers here by tying those notes while there is a fee to go inside the castle which is more for exhibition area and if u are not too keen then u may give it a miss to go inside. While do visit the point where they have a lot statues of the rangers if u are here with kids... check out the pics have posted
  • It may not be a historic castle, but the view from atop is quite nice. Besides it has a small but beautiful armour and sword collection on display (what gives me pause though is just how valuable it is: golden armours from the Tokugawa shogunate, a set of horse armour belonging to one of the greatest Warring States Period Houses etc. Seems too good to be real!), and in thrnasent, free video games you can play to your content..... Great to spend time here!
  • Samurai Armour, swords and castle models that may not be too interesting for kids. However, great view and the basement has unlimited free arcade games, physical arcade games (taiko drums,ball throwing), air hockey and a small ball room area for little kids that is a great way to spend a rainy day. Take the gondola and the trick art museum next door is fun ( incl. in entrance fee)
  • Beautiful scenery of sea and mountains
