Kofu Castle, Kofu

3.4
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.

  • While walking to breakfast the morning the bread bought just right. Benches, birds will come to the bench. The antenna is bad.

  • The city of Kofu, there is no city at all, leaving only traces, the location is next to the Kofu station, so it is convenient to come to Kofu there are a lot of stone to climb, the city can not see many, but all the way up to the day to watch the ruins, the view is indeed extraordinary, that every day, good visibility, and Mt. Fuji is clearly visible, And the whole Kofu area to close the eye, advice to Kofu, if the weather is good, this Kofu city signs, absolutely necessary.

  • After the Takeda family had perished as the Takeda family fan Castle because she was not. Is located in Kofu station by a statue of Takeda Shingen, by passing feeling came to visit at the Castle as I was supposed impressed. In the height of the stone walls, are piled high beautiful stone tower, each kuruwa, and Hori. Several nice gate to iron gate in the stone wall outside, nice view from the tower. It is in Yamanashi Prefecture and 城gai some of the Takeda family or old age, but mainly centered earthy style that this castle is a modern stone wall so no sensation Takeshi Ueda Castle. But it was a very nice Castle.

  • This is what left of the castle. It is nothing much to see in term of castle but the view of the city when you are on top of the wall is good. The best part? It is free.
  • Nice for a stroll. You can walk among the old castle structure and all the way up to a great viewing point. Wonderful view of the city and surrounding mountains. Gardens are kept trim and neat.
  • Nice view of mountains all around. Small and quiet park.
  • Great view of Kofu
  • Relaxing view
