  • It was modern inside. Some things, so much history has to be broken and enjoy free game corner underground sounds (laughs).

  • Had time to check-in, so I came for the first time. In the aerial tramway up to the top of the mountain Atami Castle! Atami Castle thing, didn't know to come here. In splendid bathroom, seen here from the city was very beautiful.

  • Historic buildings are not. Good views of the game rooms, a rooftop Observatory underground only. Is on the first floor exhibits, such as body armor and sword, but relatively new in the age line massage machines next to it is the even and divination and did not feel emotionally dead. It seems the よせあつめ recreational facilities for travel.

  • It was cool but you should take a photo while you are above it in the mountains. Once you get up close to can't get a good photo because there are electrical lines in the way.
  • Must visit place in Atami. It's easy to go here, just take the bus from atami station. You can see very pleasant view from its observations deck.
  • Nice building.... But actually it's not a real castle
  • Great view of Atami Bay. Elevators and accessible toilet available. BUT need an accessible taxi to get there as the hill is very steep and the ropeway is not accessible.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Atami

The fairly modestly sized urban area of Atami boasts a number of places to stay, which is fitting for this holiday resort town. The most built-up area around the harbor has lots of modern hotels and more established guesthouses. Many focus on comfort and luxury, with traditional onsens at most of the places. Shoestring travelers will find some budget-friendly options without spa facilities--you can always pop into one of the accommodations with an onsen if the mood strikes.
