Fukuyama Castle, Fukuyama
(2.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Visit Fukuyama Castle, one of the greatest castles of the Edo Period. Originally built in the early 17th century, this six-story castle was rebuilt in 1966 because it was mostly destroyed by air raids during World War II. The castle was once surrounded by a double moat, but unfortunately today that has been replaced by pavement. While the castle housed many notable families throughout its history, it now serves as a museum. It's worthwhile to hire a local guide when visiting the museum in order to learn about the significance of different exhibits. Put Fukuyama Castle on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Fukuyama holiday planner.

  • Every time I go to the Fukuyama climbs up to the Castle. When burnt in the war, young father seems saw the fire from a distance. Beautiful stone walls and inside will be exhibitions about the history of Castle and Castle. From the top floor behind the front on the Shinkansen bullet train behind it is the view of the Seto Inland Sea. Art galleries and museums close surroundings are always in good condition and the feel of town of culture.
