    Castle is a mock castle, style is very nice. If exist of this scale in the more confidently PR, please you want to. Mineral stone shades are seen in the castle of other hues than bright ambience and very friendly atmosphere. Converge donations are sometimes heard when our guide makes the Castle making Castle castle boom was not so slightly more than able to do a small castle only where it seems a pity. Castle they completely unattractive to trees around the dark green color is in the summer, but I think as the role big presence. Certainly the castle is the small, crowded when very small. Souvenir corner on the first floor of the honest Street (corner of Park), be should not or would move. Exhibits a very cramped impression is a shame I slowly saw is very narrow and was confused in early roadie will. And are ready to deploy at the same time, the battle of mikatagahara, head of the former Castle, Rhino months Cliff article also by the more descriptive exhibit good think. By it (it was written had been very messy) to Hamamatsu various historical attractions will go to. As well as in the Hamamatsu Castle, Hamamatsu Castle Park in the Hall of the technical description should make sense. It may take time, but such a nice nozura of the castle is from us please you want to. A castle gate was going in the entrance of the Castle, but to be honest I have seems to be... The money is at stake is of no need looking at parts not decided only by building officials about the watch piercing entry here, so a good free? I forgot to write a review of Hamamatsu Castle Park at the parking lot next to the Concorde hotel can the giant coffee chain was written. (Be glad to feel really low resting place for tourists and so) hope more and more exciting place to be. However, strictly respecting the history-making it on premise.

    It is written in addition to think about, such as large as a castle, is smaller than. The feeling of what locals love just went and visited Hamamatsu City with local residents. An historical exhibition also would mean local to know, because even if you have enough time to visit it good.

    Only the castle like looking across the country go through, but just view over town. In place to go all the way is to explore the good, I think.

    The castle itself is small but beautiful. Don't miss the garden behind it - that was my favorite part.

    The castle keep is small in comparison to nagoya or osaka but definitely a nice place to visit.
