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. Using our custom trip planner, Iga attractions like Iga-Ueno Castle can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Yesterday, went to the Iga Ueno Castle after a long time. You want to introduce to you, remembering the thing then there's Autumn Festival [on an open-air shinsai, wrote in to share a photo of the last year, you know the atmosphere. Is said to have a 400-year-old Festival this year is 2017 10/20-takes place on the 22nd. It is recommended be seen IGA City tourism official site for more information. Danger yoiyama is beautiful the lanterns attached to the danger we all used candles last year. Regular Festival across the city pulled plenty of danger, a medieval festival in the value of one is recommended by a city, don't miss you feel in the body, and it is best.

  • It is a 2 second visit. Becomes a castle, stone wall and moat as the ruins are especially stone wall highlights. Almost vertically in the odd angle height is 30 metres long and it is the height of the top of Japan. You can see great views but actually looking at. See also the stone look from the other side of the moat can afford. Looks the best there is. Castle of otherwise collapsed nearly completed, currently has three-tier is on the 3rd floor. Simply because I really wasn't interested in the Castle looked....
