  • Were feeling watching Castle, from the first floor to the sixth floor floor very enjoyed. The floor is the top floor have great views as well and each to enjoy the hotel's. Yakiroti located in the basement while all guests can enjoy free. Couple in their sweat enjoyed the sink.

  • Location is a bit inconvenient, the walk is not. Castle made for tourists, so the appearance is little toys like the scenery is very beautiful.

  • Long queue to get up to the "castle" which is a tourist attraction. We didn't pay to go inside. The car parking is highly organised though as all Japanese things are. Not worth the trip up unless you ...  more »

  • 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
