Fukuyama Castle, Fukuyama

3.2
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 The castle was once surrounded by a double moat, but unfortunately today that has been replaced by pavement.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.

  • That will not be lost because Fukuyama Station North exit. To the left of the station from putting the luggage lockers so you can. As stairs to climb (number of columns is not far) short from the castle to Castle = get up does not mean much. It is pity that divided people climb up and down so easy climbing and have a height and reach the top of the Castle. In the Fukuyama Castle is gaining a medal in the Castle.

  • No access for wheelchair or baby strollers. A lot of stairs, so its not friendly for older people, also.The exhibits weren't too interesting, mainly because there's no information in English. The only pros are its beautiful exterior, and for ¥200, you'll get a breath-taking view of Fukuyama city, especially on the east side, where there's St. Valentine's church. The view alone worth the entrance fee.
  • Beautiful castle on the outside right near the train station. Worth a look .
  • A rest park in a way for people and also for families around there.
  • Within walking distance from Fukuyama Station, this castle was reconstructed after World War II. The exterior is nice.
  • The castle is a disappointment if you are looking for an authentic keep but otherwise the castle has a lot of charm. It is absolutely fabulous during cherry blossom time and packed to the rafters with revellers. The castle appears to have a more symbiotic and relaxed relationship with the locals and as an ex local myself I love the atmosphere.
