Iwakuni Castle, Iwakuni

(3.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Connected to the world via ropeway, Iwakuni Castle has a natural defense advantage. Feudal Lord Kikkawa Hiroie built it in 1608, but the castle was torn down shortly after because of the strict law of "one castle per province." After its destruction, a part of the citadel served as the residential office for Kikkawa. The reconstructed building stands four stories high on a hilltop. Visit the observation room at the top, where you can admire the panoramic view of the city and the Kintai Bridge. Buy a ticket at the entrance of the bridge, which gives you access to the bridge, the ropeway in both directions, and the castle grounds.

  • When I did a very bad luck, ropeway suspension and worse. True if the kintai bridge Iwakuni Castle and set ticket you can buy, but if suspension is the ropeway Iwakuni Castle rest by. From the deeper driveways of private car continues to the Summit, said whether or not the momijidani Park that is located southwest from the gondola station. Are going to go up from there, about 25 minutes in the 1500 m climb-took me about 30 minutes. …… Shall I come to check whether or not moving ropeway in advance so they do not like. I think I expected because the tower is closed, but views views.

  • To get from the station in about 10 minutes. You can enjoy many surprising and a number of swords Center's exhibits, but. Also in kintai bridge connection between odd-shaped Bridge photos and in the Castle link Castle castle photo to or decorated. The view from the top floor is very nice and sunny even much fun if he could. Stairs from surprising and Kitui, think there is just should need.

  • Riding the third place from the top of the mountain. Road and from there to the Castle mountain road was paved in about 8 minutes and approximately 10 minutes. Better paved mountain road width narrower soon Cliff because you have small children or even (be ◡with window ' a) paved road is the last stairs I'm this very painful handrail climbs right side wobbly.! Castle is smaller than I thought, but the view was spectacular (◠ for ◠)
