Inspirock Rating:
3.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web
Take in the imposing walls of Shimabara Castle, a 17th-century fortification framed by blossoming trees and complete with moat, watchtowers, and keep. Pose for pictures with staff in costumes from the Edo period when you enter, and then move on to inspect the array of artifacts and tools in the keep museum, which traces the history of this complex and its politics. You'll have opportunities to dress up yourself as a samurai warrior. Prepare to navigate many stairs within the keep, but panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside reward your efforts.

  • 在看過許多戰國江戶古城之後,光看這裡的照片可能會不想來。 畢竟五層的天守有點詭異。 不過天守旁,應該說整個公園/城區,壕溝非常有意思。 
  • I came so close to our hotel. Women wearing body armor at the entrance to guide people, actually got dressed body armor, swords took a picture. It took admission into the Castle. The history of Nagasaki and the history of Christianity, was written. From hot in the summer, was also handing out paper fans with concessions. From the town and the sea looked good. Also, blooming Lotus flower-filled in the moat around the Castle, we were very good.
