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.
