Kakegawa Castle, Kakegawa

3.9
#1 of 11 in Historic Sites in Kakegawa
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.

    In July, I visited. Kakegawa Castle are extant Palace and restored castles and extant Palace is the most interesting. In the airy feeling good despite the Midsummer Classics, honoring the job situation of feudal lords. You could enjoy the castle was on the other hand, new, log cabin-like atmosphere in the extant Castle near Castle was unique atmosphere.

    And a close look at places to see the Castle other than it takes time. I'd do better if you're going to see the whole thing with the spare 10 minutes time. I think if tomorrow is within walking distance from train station and easy-to-adjust the diameter.

    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。
