Fukuyama Castle, Fukuyama

(2.9/5 based on 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 The castle was once surrounded by a double moat, but unfortunately today that has been replaced by pavement.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. Put Fukuyama Castle on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Fukuyama holiday planner.

  • Fukuyama Station North exit to leave a stone wall in front of. Trail is directly below the stone walls. Without difficulty will touch the stone. You can easily look up from below. Slightly upstream of stone but difficult to easily access still Castle is first useful. Himeji Castle (shirasagi Castle) was a great Castle, similar to the. You can see from the Seto Inland Sea. Easily accessible castle! It was a very valuable experience.

  • Go to the more famous tomonoura, via JR Fukuyama station. Seen well directly from the train station, very convenient. But closed at the end of the year, did not.

  • 每次搭新幹線經過,都看見這座城,終於在一個櫻花的季節, 去完鞆の浦後順便拜訪了他, 就在JR福山駅旁, 在此亦看見了剛剛出芽的紫藤,期待五月開的時候再來看看啊!  more »
