Tamamo Park, Takamatsu

(3.6/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • You can buy food in containers of the Gacha Gacha. Per so whilst there is double. Instead of just throwing the, through pipes, since lobbying carp bait like the helpful. Pine is fine. Buildings are not allowed, but that any loose glass was nice.

  • Each year, go blossom in?! Cherry blossom season puts free of charge. The early group I'm taking place from the afternoon. In the brightness of the Lantern lantern, with the wind at night can enjoy cherry-blossom viewing. From Takamatsu station, convenient location.

  • Visited in the winter. From Takamatsu station and first see the TSUKIMI Yagura. You can realize a respectable appearance which is like a tower, came to the Castle. Of course turn around. We arrive at the parks and gardens of majestic pine; Grows we were surprised how much number of pine trees! Lol and uchibori swimming large amounts of farmed sea bream, which also surprised! Lol. Sea Castle and all staff were very helpful. * Sea bream bait staff can do. * Small suitcase near the entrance of free lockers.

  • 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.
