Fukuyama Castle, Fukuyama

(200+ 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 The castle was once surrounded by a double moat, but unfortunately today that has been replaced by pavement.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.

  • Fukuyama Castle Fukuyama Castle Park, just north of JR Fukuyama station. Fukuyama Castle now stands, however, Fukuyama Castle was destroyed in the war, because it is in the restored buildings, the Fukuyama Castle Museum. You can enjoy as a castle 10 minutes are, however, restore a Fukuyama Castle burnt down before the appearance. Fukuyama Castle's current appearance restored building is burned before and, touched by the beauty of the Castle and look. I think Castle is the Museum of the history, such as the remains of the Castle are very enjoyable.

  • Some gates and watchtowers in the building during the Edo period of cultural property built in reinforced concrete is seen, but also been. Very nice virtual tour precincts and a few hours is required. So can visit a little time before the train ride from Fukuyama station so is recommended.
