  • From the look of the Castle Tower observation deck looks hatsushima island and the Izu-Oshima Island. 見idasemasenn, 900 yen worth. Great views of the castle's entrance near normally. It is, of course, to this location from the old Castle without the tourists built in Showa 30's.

  • On the first floor and that the Castle went to the sixth floor, one basement floor made for sightseeing, couldn't honestly include views outside. Sword and armour were exhibited, but my own interest not so much. Even go on the floor between the hotel descriptions without a lot of well know. May not feel a higher entrance fee if you come also to play for a long time in the underground playground and free games Center in.

  • Oh I went to light up when it was closed after the illuminated Castle at the experience not impressed. No time is lost I think if without taking handplaning Atami Castle to even after the closing is illuminated as long as you go. Also known as ornamental spot hidden during the fireworks display.

  • 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
