Kakegawa Castle, 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.

  • From the square in front of the entrance nice insta aesthetics could not be because it didn't have enough time in such a photo. Also I want to visit while slowly, from up the stairs photo spot... next time to have. Not incidentally firmly at the entrance fee and facility fee, but were so hung / about 2000 yen.

  • Castle has small three-tier, who rebuilt the fervor of the old leave internal stairs quite steep and down is scary. Sunny day, the view from the top floor could see Mt. Fuji.

  • Standard Japanese castle overlooking the entire town of Kakegawa. Not many other sightseers and not much to look at up to the keep. Still, the view from the keep is a prize on a clear sunny day.
  • 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.
  • Muromachi age castle. Not crowded and compact. Convenient sightseeing spot to see Japanese historical castle.
  • 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.
