Tamamo Park, Takamatsu
(3.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Take a step back into the past and visit the remains of an early 17th-century castle as you take a peaceful stroll through Tamamo Park. As you walk through the former castle grounds, take in views of surrounding trees, old stone walls, and the nearby sea. Continue to walk around the park and you will come across a 100-year-old Hiunkaku house, which features a traditional Japanese interior complete with paper doors. The highlight of the park is the restored castle, with a history dating back to the Edo period. One of Japan’s only castles, it features a moat that connects to the ocean.

  •  In the garden was like bonsai Prefecture well manicured garden. Ritsurin Park, worked on the Lord is.  You could feel the expanse once inside is not too wide. Hall adjacent to the parking lot and prepared for park users are free, but users are numerous unauthorized parked in a sad mood. Admission is 200 yen cheap adult and is not suitable for walking in or. In addition, 65 years old or over and seemed free.

  • 可能是一早去到,一個遊客都冇,好寧靜,交通很方便,如果會經開琴電高松站、高松築港、高松JR可以順道一遊。 
  • Boat sea bream bait was doing. Many come as you navigate the boat, sea bream threw to carp bait. There were many good bream caught one, want the grandchildren's friends and colleagues. It was time for a while made it back to the innocence.

  • This is not a typical castle like in Osaka, Nagoya, Himeji or so. This is more like a park. It's located about 5 minutes from JR Takamatsu station and at local train station. The entrance fee was 200JPY (as of today), but it seems that it's voluntary.
  • Tamamo Garden suffers from two things: - Comparison with nearby Ritsurin Garden. - The fact that people usually expect to find a castle there when they visit, and leave disappointed as most of the castle is long gone. The thing is that Tamamo Garden is a very different kind of garden than Ritsurin is. It's main interest is historical and not aesthetic. And while you won't find what people usually call a Japanese castle (i.e. the main tower of said castle), there is plenty of interesting things to find there: - The saltwater moat, a very rare thing. - The tsukimi tower, which dates from the 17th Century. - The main building (open to the public only a few days a year and on special events). In other words don't dismiss it because you didn't have the right expectations about it.
  • I think this place is good in night Unfortunately i didn't.
  • On Sunday you can visit the TSUKIMI-Yagura and corridor inside. I will be open also gomon has been closed.
