Kakegawa Castle, Kakegawa
(3.9/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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. See Kakegawa Castle and all Kakegawa has to offer by arranging your trip with our Kakegawa itinerary planner.

  • Yamauchi kazutoyo and his wife lived in a castle. It was nice place from the Palace looked at the Castle. Kneeling, location to view for a while. Tower Palace is watched at 410 yen. Restoration was made in wood and a small but impressive. You could watch the slow, warm.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful, must see. Pretty cheap. Don't forget to get the matcha ice cream down the hill after.
  • shfg

  • Is a reprint, wooden 4-story staircase steep if you tell after about 100 years worth up next to the Palace is the building during the Edo period
