Kakegawa Castle, Kakegawa

(3.9/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • I think very good, quite unlike the castle only sells souvenirs and re-created the making that at that time, had imposed a travel. In admission fees 410 goten come in, very good. Recommend slowly over time, to tour

  • To see the cherry blossoms, I went by car. Could wander around the Castle are illuminated while the walk had closed to. It is very beautiful. Or jogging, moderation and brightness is safe and also has a dog walk.

  • 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.
