Castle Tourist Spot
Kishiwada Castle, or Chikiri Castle, was erected by Hidemasa Koide in 1597. Nobukatsu, ruler of Okabe Mino, took possession of the castle in 1640 from Takatsuki. The Okabe family maintained its position for 13 generations (up to the Meiji Restoration). The castle's main tower was destroyed when struck by lightning in 1827, but was reconstructed in 1954, and is now also used as a folk museum.

  • 天守閣、お堀とたたえる水、それを取り巻く緑、それらがきれいに保存されているのは、ありそうでない。岸和田市は南大阪で唯一、その中心部に美しい城をもつ誇らしい街である。You can reach Kishiwadajou Castle in 10~15minutes from Kishiwada station of Nankai Line.  more »

  • I visited 7/9/29! A special favorite is famous tourist both without Kishiwada Castle in the area car Festival ~! Castle guests looking for a little quiet, I slowly see. I turned off the parking lot and around the cancer rates close to Castle next to the parking lot, the first hour is free after 1 hour ¥ 100 and is cheap! Later near the toilet of the ninomaru Park, has space for some free parking! Leave from next to the City Hall come into Kishiwada Castle Hill began and immediately turn right onto Castle right in front! Cancer, information board or can this aim is good! Note, Sakai Minami line Street municipal parking lot has a closing time! 1 and 2 floors of the Castle Museum in is on the 3rd floor observation cars Museum is prohibited for photos that did not take. What a beautiful folding screen up on the 3rd floor! ~! Because it did not become prohibited in playful self timer your own POV was! To fill out the Museum's admission fee: ¥ 300 on the first floor and take it to the reception could two-color ballpoint pen!

  • I went with my husband. Five-story Castle was likely had been rebuilt in there. It is a pity. However, it was small but beautiful castle. The best is how castles volunteers feel good, even more good, erkenbrand had bowing with a smile.

  • Because it was not in the Castle, or leftover Castle Tower, but I had no money, I pick up a 3-tier Cretaceous Castle more than I wanted building 5 layer according to historical castles. The name seems to be library. According to the article, the height of the tower is higher than Kumamoto Castle, just one of height of Shimabara Castle seems to be. If Shimabara castle-like Tower sits on the ruins of that.... Appearance of a front burned back... stark naked in "bottle obotchamakun." of like so also want to thank building corner tower historical Street. Lavatory Tower in its place there is the ninomaru is based on historical fact, we wanted to built a corner tower and Fushimi-Yagura restaurant is as good as no... er ruins it by taxpayers for building became settlement. It is too bad.
