  • It seems unusual town kitsuki Castle and old Samurai residences tuck Castle in Sandwich form. Old house or houses which line the town's not in the other. It is a great spot for quiet and feel the passage of time. I want offers best in the tourist area of Oita Prefecture.

  • Old Samurai residences, merchants and the town streets are lined and very nice atmosphere. I think the town look good because it was a weekday, tourists were kimono. (Saw the flyers) seems to be in about 3000 yen, kimono, kimono rental shop. About one hour to walk point in about an hour and a half you can.

  • Has a very good mini-museum with a lot more material and artifacts than most castles in oita and Fukuoka.
  • Cute small castle in centerpiece of this Samurai town.
  • Mainly came to see the samurai streets. Was not disappointed, two streets both running off a main road to ridge lines overlooking the Main Street, then running along those ridges. Many buildings were open and free to inspect. The castle stands at the end of one of those ridges and is about 10 minute walk . It is a tiny recreation but sits on a hill with fantastic views.
  • Fantastic views of the town from here.
  • Is speaking out more, keremashita! Views from the 3rd floor was beautiful. A natural way to reach the castle was beautiful. Free Wi-Fi is the best!!
