  • Just across the road in front of visiting the Kodokan to 3/14 currently had a restoration project on the gate. It is ever there was not much out table Mito Castle, which finally began to move. Future trends are fun. West of empty bargain even presence.

  • After enjoying Plum in kairakuen, visited as a castle tour, but now was a development under construction. Big three Mito boasts compiling the history of Japanese education and culture sectors. Also the Castle since the Meiji era Castle and Castle became a place of education. We have memories of the old Castle in an empty trench earthworks.

  • Now much of it is school, there is no much sense of ruins of a castle. Full exhibition but few exhibits. Is around the ruins of a round I and staff turning karahori, steep cliffs and ruins of a castle. Furthermore, as currently have major gate restoration, 9/2019 seems to be completed.

  • ("Mito Komon"-from the image) bought the Seishun 18 ticket because there is no money, one day × 5, has planned a trip. 1, without prior knowledge of what the castle tour. Delusion in the statue in front of koumon party arrived in Mito station, tension, said in the aftermath of the rising TV? I'm sure great Castle and walked to the Mito Castle, but almost nothing. It seems to be (castle ruins) school has built a few things, but the less tourist destination seem like it was. Train was running in the moat mark the location. And some meat, I'm watching the place of historic interest remains first stroll around little bit disappointed, but certainly had a castle here, deep inside emotion that I thought was coming. Then take the Mito line, towards the small fortress. (Leading to the small Fortress)

  • Major bridge across from the Kodokan in Mito Castle is kuinji except not left nothing but old buildings. In addition to the Ordinance of the Tokugawa shogunate violent clan in contention (Hiromichi war) and Meiji waste Castle burned and damaged, bites the coup de grace by 8/1945 Mito air raid, he lost it. But site not shopping and residential area, maintains the atmosphere of the Castle and school zone while school is in almost all areas. Signs and monument, the gate was restored, which is built here and there from major bridge. From the main gate, ninomaru Palace trail (sign only), ninomaru Pavilion (formerly, believe House mark) (sign only) the three-storied Tower trail from the Edo period have survived "chinquapin trees" (over 400 years), on the north side area was by far "Sugiyama gate" (restore). Etc. Further advancing across the Honjo bridge is the ruins of the honmaru. Medicine Medical gate (hashizume gate) in the ruins of the Castle, and Mito primary school (primary school in Ibaraki) and now here. It seems that only Mito castle ruins this gate was relocated to the Castle has long since burned down the existing. Could you visited is the grounds of the school. And directly down the Hill and turn right to the Honjo didn South of this area, so that "rail town Sakashita-Mon" (reproduction), followed by land of the light 圀's birth and Mito station. Now the reconstruction to Mito Castle buildings! Restoring the Mito Castle burnt down before the plan says there is much good was not so it seems. Cleverly using topography of the natural turf, but no stone walls (earthworks and empty mine only), the donjon was not built. On the whole you would say was represent the spirit of the Mito clan frugal the castle was a very well put. Considered in the Lord is not obligation of 参覲, in addition to the reason for that was the era of peace and built the final form of the castle during the warring States period already, is said to be hard financially was resident in Edo for the castle in Mito did not put yell too much ( Koishikawa Korakuen garden in the Edo period daimyō marks compared. But it is). Approach to explore heritage left in the Mito Mito is attraction than hard at and I think, unfortunately, is not. Also, Mito business overall I care is scarce, so even here, close to tourist attractions, souvenir shops, restaurants, tourist information not maintained. If you buy a souvenir train station building. East West moat mound worthy to remain, especially cherry season is tasteful, is recommended.

  • It is a feudal Lord of the Mito House of Tokugawa. Live at the Tokugawa residence in Edo at the time, Lord, so as the castle of the big three would be really poor at scale. But I think now its remnants remained throughout, is pretty impressive.
