  • Friendly locals on hand, and we could even dress up like samurai for free :) Nice views of the city below.  more »
  • 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.

  • This is a beautiful castle. It costs 300yen to enter and you must remove your shoes before stepping out of the entrance way and into the castle itself. Staff were extremely friendly and despite the language barrier, did all they could to explain the history of the castle. You can climb up to the top and you are rewarded with beautiful views of the surrounding city and landscape. It is a 30 minute walk from Shiroishi-zao Station or you can take a taxi.
  • The place looks desolate, but the natural beauty around the castle saves it. If you get a chance to try the Samurai outfit, the trip might be worth it.
  • A great spot to relax an get view of the area... amazing woodwork. Avoid the tourist section and head out to the garden and woods.
  • All staff were so freindly. Awesome view of the city.
  • Some interesting examples of what the castle buildings might have looked like.
