Fukuyama Castle, Fukuyama

2.9
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 The castle was once surrounded by a double moat, but unfortunately today that has been replaced by pavement.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.

  • It is located prominently from Fukuyama Station on the Sanyo Shinkansen. The view from the castle was good, but it was felt not so much as a castle but also in the facilities of the museum.

  • I can't think of such a splendid castle near the station. I can't see anything from the Shinkansen, but I stopped by the train meeting time. I didn't enter the castle tower because I didn't have time, but the castle tower seen from various angles from the surroundings is beautiful.

  • When I came to Fukuyama after a long time, I thought the castle would be nice again. The scenery in the evening is good, but the light-up at night is even better. I wanted to stay at a hotel with a view of the castle from my room.
