Iga-Ueno Castle, Iga

3.6
#2 of 36 in Things to do in Iga
Perched on top of a hill and dating back to 1585, Iga-Ueno Castle was once the site of a 16th-century three-story castle. Today, find a three-story white-walled structure where inside you'll find a museum featuring items such as a woven hat, a traditional tea jar, and samurai relics. A 30 m (98 ft) wall was built around the original castle during the early 17th century, and since its construction it still holds the record as Japan's tallest castle wall. You can walk around the complex and still find the walls standing strong.

    3-tier Tower 3rd floor is wooden. While enjoying the breeze in the 3rd, followed by a hot and humid day in facilities such as air conditioning, but look below on the Castle Downtown. Who seems less busy summer holiday period during the weekdays, so much to see in exhibits should visit on a weekday. In addition, high stone tower west of North moat is a must. Keep this mind when no fence, so look into the moat. Looking from the other side of the moat road further realize its grandeur, is recommended.

    Ueno high school Athletics Department was running around this area. Spacious and full of ups and downs, was the best. Cherry blossom season is really great. You'll see the towering Castle, IGA-city anywhere in.

    The castle is a bit on the small side, but it has some great views. Also, the castle wall next to the moat is pretty impressive.
