  • The castle itself was famous for other than compact bunches. But is holding is required, satisfaction is high. To the York-benimaru adjacent shopping is useful to stop it.

  • Castle is compact. Donjon has been rebuilt as a long time ago not so nice. Cedar has been used and liked the flavor.

  • A small castle, yet charming. It doesn't have Japanese garden just like other castles, but it has its own charm. You can go to the top floor to view the entire city. In October a cool festival called 'Oni-Kojuro' is held in the castle ground. It's basically a reenactment of the historical Battle of Osaka. Cool stuffs!
  • I would like people to see sightseeing in Japan from all over the world. Miyagi prefecture not only Masamune Date, but Kojuro Katakura is also famous.
  • What an awesome sight to behold! You pay 300 yen to get in, the castle itself is very basic on the inside (but beautiful in its simplicity), it's not what I'd call a 'castle', myself (being from the UK), but more of a defence building. You can also wander around the grounds for free, but I'd suggest coughing up the money anyway, the people inside are really nice, and you can play dress up with them too.
  • It's extremely relaxing​ in a quiet area and, even though it's not really big or really close to the station on foot, I was really happy when I've seen it! Highly recommended if you happen to go near Shiroishi.
  • A very nice, traditional Japanese castle from the Date Masamune time. A worthwhile visit to be sure. Don't forget the 3D movie!
