  • If you have already seen the important historical and ethnographic museums, you can skip it. Small but significant Castle Museum, collects in 5 thematic areas family history Ii who during the EDo period (1615-1868) lived and ruled in the castle: samurai armor, Noh masks and costumes, furnishings of the tea ceremony, musical instruments, furniture, documents and manuscripts. You visit in an hour, no flash.
