Take in the striking Irayama-style architecture of Kakegawa Castle. Originally completed in 1487, the citadel has now been restored to its former glory, using traditional techniques and materials. Observe displays of weapons, armor, and documents in the building, and look out for the strategically placed ambush hideout on the way in. You should prepare for an uphill walk to where the castle perches, so wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water along with you.

  • Can be reached in less than 10 minutes leisurely walk on foot from the conventional line, Shinkansen Kakegawa station also. Approach is not so big, but is on a hill and I capture your heart to the beauty and power. Is possible in a short period of time, but only the region of the tea so thank the tea connoisseur, while want to thank enjoy beauty of the Castle at night from the evening. I think when the tour inside the Castle stairs so she isn't a short skirt.

  • Arriving on the road about five minutes by foot from the train station, in the middle of color pavement. Castles were reprinted in the premises of a quiet Park winds along the River were enshrined. I thought the place environment and some foot facilities around the River promenade, are not so called tourism.

  • Because the castle is a restored wooden stairs are steep atmosphere on sale now! Palace had various exhibits, spectacular to see. I would so not too much difference between the high and low but very clean, easy to read.

  • Ninja tour guides!!! On the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month Ninja tour guides will be there to guide you through the castle and it's history. Beautiful castle. The castle itself is a recreatiom but there is a palace next to it that is more than 400 years old.
  • Beautiful, must see. Pretty cheap. Don't forget to get the matcha ice cream down the hill after.
  • Small but very beautiful castle. You can view the entire kakegawa from the castle keep. On a clear day you can have a glimpse of mt fuji. Highly recommended for visiting kakegawa since its just a few blocks from the station.

  • 有忍者出沒的城! 從天守可以遠眺整個掛川市, 扮成忍者的志工伯伯超級可愛,還有人在城裡吹笛子,雖然小小的但可以感到當地居民對城濃濃的愛。
