Kofu Castle, Kofu

(2.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Take a leisurely stroll around the 16th-century remains of Kofu Castle, once a formidable castle, now a park, commonly used by locals for relaxing and walking. Following the original castle's abandonment in 1877, the government dismantled the historic site bit by bit until 1930. Today a plethora of plaques around the park give you an idea of what the castle once looked like by explaining where old castle features such as walls and doors stood. You can still find some of the original walls and steps, particularly around the outskirts of the site, however mostly flat green grassy patches and newly built footpaths remain. Plan your visit to Kofu Castle and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kofu itinerary maker.
