Okazaki Castle, Okazaki

(220+ reviews on the web)
Castle Historic Site
The birthplace of one of the most influential men in Japanese history, Okazaki Castle offers picturesque grounds, rich historical artifacts, and panoramic views. First constructed in the 15th century, the castle gained renown upon the birth of Tokugawa Ieyasu, a daimyo's son who went on to establish a shogunate ruling clan that lasted over 200 years. Though reconstructed during the 1950s, the citadel retains is original moat and foundations, as well as a range of relics and models displayed in its exemplary museum. Try on a replica version of Ieyasu's samurai armor for a distinct photo opportunity, and visit the viewing platform to take in extensive scenic views of the city and the Mikawa plains below. Work out when and for how long to visit Okazaki Castle and other Okazaki attractions using our handy Okazaki travel itinerary maker.

  • This is also ancient and cool garden park.
  • I went to Okazaki Castle as HANAMI with my friends in sparing vacation. There are many cherry trees, so it was so beautiful !! The view makes everyone can be impressed. I'm glad to see it in Japan. Also, there are many food wagons we like. I love it !! We bought many foods, talk and see the cherry trees. It was happy time for us. Fortunately, a military commander `BUSHOU` in Japanese gave us a map of the Okazaki Castle !! It was funny, isn't it? I hope to visit there next spring, also decrease people in there :p
  • A normal Japanese castle.
