  • We went to Lockheart castle because we saw the sign as we were driving through Gunma, and thought it might be a fun stop. Ok so the story is that a Japanese actor bought the main old building (it's a....  more »

  • I was there once before and we went all though the Castle. I was disappointed that we were only allowed to see the first floor this time. However, they were doing a lot of work on the buildings and....  more »

  • This place is so beautiful and romantic!! You can buy a glass/metal heart to place somewhere around the grounds with your significant other. It was a cool experience. This would be a nice place to get married. I love the surrounding trees, and the castle is gorgeous. Definitely worth it if you’re in the area.
  • If you don't have a vehicle, prepare for a big taxi bill. The location is gorgeous though and you can understand the appeal for romantics, whether with their SO, friends, or by themselves. The castle is, however, smaller than you might expect but has has many interesting things in and around it.
  • Very beautiful place. A must-visit for couples. It's accessible by public bus from Numata Station, Platform #2, bound to Nakayama. You can get off right in front of Lockheart Castle. Make sure to check the time though as the bus leaves only every about 2 hours. Bus fare is about ¥600 (as of January 2018).
  • A great place to take a family and relax. Many people enjoy dressing up in 19 century clothes and getting their photo taken in front of this Scottish castle. There are 2 restaurants but my personal favourite is the one by the entrance called Patricia. The atmosphere there is great. Pets are welcome.
  • Very eclectic collections and a.beautiful castle.
